By on

Apple will stop the development of Aperture App for its Mac products, rumors said.

According to recent reports that are circulating today, Apple will stop the development of Aperture app as it will be replaced along with iPhoto by a new application called Photos which was announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) a few weeks ago.

?With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture,? ?Apple said in a statement . ?When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X.?

The Photos app will be combined with iCloud Photo Library, replacing both Aperture and iPhoto. While Photos will allow users to store, search, and edit photos via the cloud on Apple devices, there?s this speculations that more or less, Photos will not include professional-oriented tools that can be found in Aperture.

With Photos app, all the photos will be backed up to Apple?s iCloud ? something that Apple users have been asking the company for quite some time.

Aperture App

Aperture is a popular app that gives photography the professional treatment it deserves. It offers sophisticated tools to perfect images and powerful ways to browse and choose the best shots.

Also, Aperture has all the tools you need to uncover the hidden potential in your photos. It provides you with even more advanced ways to organize, browse, and perfect images.

Aperture had its last major version update to 3.5 on October 22, 2013, and since then, only minor updates had been implemented. It could be remembered that Aperture users have been complaining about the occasional updates of the application.

While Aperture will not be developed anymore, reports said that Apple will still continue to provide compatibility updates to allow Aperture to run on OS X Yosemite.
