Everything you can do when iOS and macOS are twins

For years, there has been talk about a kind of hybrid operating system between iOS and macOS . And although Tim Cook rejected the idea at the time, there are many users who want this implementation on their devices.

Both iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 will be released in 2018, but what would happen if both operating systems were twins? In this article we will mention all those functions that this hybrid of Apple would offer.

Normally, iOS updates are much more interesting than those of macOS , due to the wide margin of improvement offered by the technology of mobile devices. So let's see what advantages a hybrid would provide on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

iOS 12 and macOS 10.14

For obvious reasons, many of the iOS applications have a much less complete user experience than the macOS applications, and vice versa. A joint encoding between iOS and macOS could offer the best of both operating systems in a single device.

On the other hand, some iOS mobile apps have many features that are not available on a Mac . A clear example of this premise is the official Netflix application for iOS. In iOS, Netflix offers the possibility to download videos for viewing without an Internet connection on iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. But, nevertheless, the web version of Netflix for Mac does not have this functionality.

So what would happen if Apple allowed the use of the iOS App Store on the Mac? This way we would have access to millions of apps . For this oneiric idea could come true with macOS 10.14.

Apparently, software developers will have the ability to design a single application that works for touch screens as well as with mouse and trackpad . In this way, users will only have to download one application instead of two in their different terminals, saving a lot of money in paid apps.

To finish, if Apple allowed to use apps of macOS in iOS, it would be fantastic to be able to use a mouse in an iPad (not so much in an iPhone) with the wide variety of advantages that it would offer.

Apple will present iOS 12 and macOS 10.14 during the WWDC of 2018 in the month of June. Both operating systems are expected to be available in September 2018.
