Well, I guess it is time time to say: RIP Aperture. According to a support article published by Apple this week, Aperture will stop working with the next major release of macOS. Expected to be announced this upcoming WWDC conference in June, mac 10.15 will kill Aperture. The reason is the removal of 32-bits application support in macOS 10.15. Something that Apple already said would eventually come.
Aperture won’t run in versions of the Mac operating system after macOS Mojave. Follow these steps to move your Aperture libraries to Photos or Adobe Lightroom Classic.
I will never understand why Apple decided to leave this market. Photos.app is for the mass market. Lightroom is great. As a paying member of the Adobe Photography plan, I couldn’t live without it. Apple story is all about photography when it comes to new iPhone release. This is a hot market to be in. Even if Apple seems to fall behind, they still compete very hard for the most part. This year will be no exception. Yet, they don’t have anything to offer for professional photographers.
