Jim Dalrymple at The Loop:
Apple introduced a new Photos app during its Worldwide Developers Conference that will become the new platform for the company. As part of the transition, Apple told me today that they will no longer be developing its professional photography application, Aperture.
Not a huge shocker. They are standardizing on the new Photos app (which will kill iPhoto too). Aperture felt a lot like the now-DOA Soundtrack Pro: full of features, but stagnate in its development. The Pro Apps that are here to stay (Logic, Final Cut Pro) have gotten complete re-writes in recent years. Clearly Apple feels that this treatment is not worth the effort for Aperture.
