Apple says Aperture’s days are numbered come the release of Photos
The Apple program Aperture appears to be on its last legs. Apple today added a note to the page for Aperture which states the the program will be pulled from the Mac App Store following the release of Photos.
“When Photos for OS X is available this spring, Aperture will no longer be available for purchase from the Mac App Store,” Apple said on the Aperture page.
Photos for OS X was previewed last June, but its release will not come until OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 is released. The program has been available in the 10.10.3 beta, and tech sites have been writing about the new program for a while now.
The problem for Apple has been that iPhoto was not powerful enough for avid photographers, and really was only used to take photos off of iOS devices. For novices, Aperture was just too much. Now, with the replacement for the 13 year old iPhoto, Apple may finally have a photography program that will suit the needs of most iOS devices owners, and will still suit Aperture users.
