Apple has released the first beta version of Xcode 11.4 , in which universal purchases have appeared: users will be able to pay once for an application that will run on iOS, macOS and tvOS.
Developers can already create apps for macOS based on iOS. But earlier they had no opportunity to sell them in one package. This caused discontent immediately and developers, and users.
Starting with iOS 13.4 and macOS Catalina 10.15.4, you can assign one identifier to different applications. Thanks to this, when a program is bought on one platform, it will automatically become available on another.
The only downside to universal shopping is the fact that Mac apps must be created using the Catalyst project . So far, the Mac App Store has few apps that have been ported to iOS. But perhaps a new feature will change the situation. [ Macrumors ]
