Apple pulled iPhoto and Aperture from the Mac App Store following the launch of Photos for OS X as part of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3.
According to a reliable source, Apple has been developing the next OS X 10.12 and iOS 10 photo app as the same level as iPhoto 9.6.1 for Mac and iPhoto 2.0.1 for iOS. Specific functions etc. are unknown, but for iPhoto 2.0.1 for iOS, it was possible to use brush correction tracing parts of the photo with a finger and adjusting brightness, flag in addition to favorites, and information edit for editing the photo Exif information, among others. The Mac photo app will be improved to the level of iPhoto 9.6.1 for Mac, but there is no plan to add functions such as Aperture.
Earlier this week, another report said that Apple was working to integrate Siri as a major feature in OS X 10.12. The new desktop operating system will likely be unveiled at WWDC 2016.
