Credit where credit is due.
From Gurman, in Bloomberg, five months and 15 days before WWDC 2018:
Starting as early as next year, software developers will be able to design a single application that works with a touchscreen or mouse and trackpad depending on whether it’s running on the iPhone and iPad operating system or on Mac hardware, according to people familiar with the matter…
Apple is developing the strategy as part of the next major iOS and macOS updates, said the people, who requested anonymity to discuss an internal matter. Codenamed “Marzipan,” the secret project is planned as a multiyear effort that will start rolling out as early as next year and may be announced at the company’s annual developers conference in the summer.
My take: I’m too old to be jumping on every Apple rumor, even Gurman’s. But this was a big one, and now that the cat is out of the bag I’m happy to discover in the Apple 3.0 archives that I didn’t let it pass without comment. See Bloomberg floats Apple rumor, TechCrunch throws hissy fit.
UPDATE: This came in over the transom from webmaster at MacDailyNews:
Credit where credit is due. 🙂
