Apple’s Use of AppKit, Catalyst, and SwiftUI in macOS

Alexandre Colucci (tweet, Hacker News):

As you can see in the graph:

  • AppKit apps account for a huge percentage of apps
  • After a slow start, the number of apps using SwiftUI is quickly growing
  • The number of Mac Catalyst apps reached a ceiling [but see this]


And here is the corresponding graph if you split the apps in 6 categories:

  • Catalyst apps using SwiftUI
  • Catalyst apps with no SwiftUI
  • SwiftUI apps using AppKit
  • SwiftUI apps without relying on AppKit
  • AppKit apps using SwiftUI
  • AppKit apps with no SwiftUI
