In an interview with Macworld, executives ofApple Phil Schiller, Bud Tribble and Craig Federighi said the company did not intend to merge iOS and OS X as evoked by certain rumors finding it natural that this rapprochement between the two operating systems in the future.
According to Schiller, vice president of international marketing at Apple, this would be a ” wasted energy », And the company does not even think about it. Federighi added that the apple company will not merge iOS and OS X “for reasons of convergence“. He said the goal of Apple is to provide customers with a pleasant experience when switching from one type of device to another.
“You wouldn’t want the Mac to downgrade because someone tried to turn it into iOS … and at the same time, you wouldn’t like to feel like iOS was designed by a company, and Mac by another, and that they are different for reasons of difference of vision. Added Federighi.
