Will iOS and MacOS get merged?

- Unfortunately, no. However, Apple showed a trimmed down version of UIKit and put it on MacOS so you can run iOS apps on Mac. It is still in test mode and not available until 2019. Presumably, you’d be able to tune your iOS apps so that they can also be run on MacOS.
