Platforms State of the Union // Provides way more clarity. IMO after watching, one can see Big Sur is first step where a “Mac” is really iPadOS + Catalyst apps. Native AppKit, x86, kernel code, etc will quickly look/act old, likely obsoleted over time 1/2 https://developer.apple.com/videos/play/wwdc2020/102/ …
2/2 Until a Mac is only running Catalyst + full iPad apps (multiple windows, trackpad, etc) the full experience of macOS 11+Apple Silicon will be held back (performance, security, battery life, UX integration,…). Just as iPhone morphed OS X, iPadOS is morphing macOS to a new OS.
PS/ Swift remains an interesting choice to ponder. It is obviously maturing rapidly and nothing written with it will be obsolete at all. If an app is entirely new, it seems to be the preferred approach.
