Apple calls for OS X Yosemite app submissions from developers

October 1, 2014

Shortly after releasing the first candidate version of the golden master of OS X Yosemite to developers and public beta testers, Apple has begun asking developers to submit their Mac App Store apps optimized for the new version of its desktop operating system.

As noted by MacRumors, the company has started sending out calls for submissions for OS X Yosemite-optimized apps to the Mac App Store. Apps developed with Apple’s new Swift programming language can now also be submitted for inclusion in Apple’s desktop software distribution platform:

Add powerful new functionality throughout OS X Yosemite with app extensions, explore the innovative new Swift programming language, and take advantage of advances in game technologies, Safari, iCloud, and more. To prepare your apps for the Mac App Store, download and build with the OS X Yosemite GM candidate and Xcode 6.1 GM seed from the Mac Dev Center. With the latest releases, Swift is now final and you can submit your Mac apps written with Swift to the Mac App Store.

Unveiled by Apple at WWDC last June alongside iOS 8, OS X Yosemite aka OS X 10.10 features an “iOS-ified” interface and a number of other improvements, including support for Continuity and iCloud Drive.

OS X Yosemite is expected to be officially released later this fall, probably in late October.
