At WWDC 2014, Apple announced that they would no longer be supporting their professional photography apps for iOS and Mac after iOS 8 and after the updated photos app for OS X comes out for the Mac.
So, What does this mean?
Apple will no longer provide updates for Aperture or iPhoto after this time, and users will have to stick with the current versions or move to the Adobe Creative cloud suite of apps.
Will there be something comprable to these apps?
All we know is that Apple is creating an updated Photos app for Mac, and has added editing and organization tools to the iOS app. Hopefully, the Mac version will contain the amazing editing features that could be found in Aperture. If they do then many more users will be able to create stunning images without paying the $80 for Aperture.
