Apple Says Goodbye to Aperture and iPhoto

Apple will no longer develop Aperture once OSX Yosemite releases.

With the upcoming update of the OSX Yosemite later this year, Apple is going to cease the development of two of its image editing software—Aperture and iPhoto. The app that is going to take their place is Photos, which was introduced during the WWDC keynote speech.

The news was first reported by TechCrunch, where an Apple representative said:

“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.”

There has not been a major overhaul of the Aperture app since 2010, but if you’re an active user of the same, you might feel the pinch. However, Adobe’s Lightroom far surpasses Aperture and can be the better transition app for you.
