The new Photos app for OS X will replace both Aperture and iPhoto

by tech on June 27, 2014

At WWDC, Apple announced a new app for the Mac called Photos, which will be part of OS X Yosemite. Many wondered what the announcement meant for Apple’s current photo library programs on Mac, which included the consumer-oriented iPhoto and the pro-oriented Aperture. According to a statement from Apple provided to Gigaom, both iPhoto and Aperture are goners. The new Photos app, with a heavy emphasis on iCloud Photo Library integration, will replace iPhoto, and development on Aperture will cease when Photos is launched early next year. This leaves Adobe’s Lightroom as the logical choice for professional photographers using a Mac.
