Apple Halts Development Of Aperture

Photos for OS X

As Apple ceases development of Aperture, the OSX Photos app, due in 2015, will inherit many of the features and functions.

This morning, reports began circulating that Apple was “killing Aperture.” The company’s statement below confirms that there will be no future development of Aperture, and Apple will focus on the new OSX Photos app, which is set to ship next year.

From Apple: “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. When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS X.”
