Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) retires Photo Editing App Aperture


Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) have opted to cease the development of professional Photo Editing App Aperture. Aperture will not feature in OS X Yosemite which is scheduled by Apple Inc to release this fall. Instead, Apple Inc (NASDAQ:AAPL) would help users transition to Photos, an application previewed at WWDC 2014. Photos integrates many of the advanced photo editing features that were previously found in Aperture and is also set to replace iPhoto app on the new OS X.

The development of the Aperture App has been halted by Apple Inc. Apple have decided to provide update paths to help users transition from Aperture and iPhoto to the Photos app. Furthermore, Apple will provide the compatibility updates for the Aperture App, thereby allowing it to run on OS X Yosemite, but active development on the Aperture app would be stopped.

Aperture made its debut back in 2005, targeting professional photographers and advanced photo-editing experts. The App has sure come a long way, with Apple reducing the price significantly in 2011 and making a couple of major updates along the way. However, Aperture has failed to get major updates in the last three years.

Aperture’s Demise

Along with Aperture, iPhoto is also set to retire with the entrance of the new OS X Yosemite. This seems to put an added spotlight on Photos app as it would now replace the both the apps. This may also mean the end of the iPhoto app on iOS.

Apple released the following statement about Aperture: “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.”
