Jim Dalrymple of The Loop has reported that Apple will stop development of Aperture in favor of the new Photos app demonstrated at its Worldwide Developers Conference that will ship with Yosemite.

Dalrymple wrote:

"With the introduction of the new Photos app and iCloud Photo Library, enabling you to safely store all of your photos in iCloud and access them from anywhere, there will be no new development of Aperture," said Apple in a statement provided to The Loop. "When Photos for OS X ships next year, users will be able to migrate their existing Aperture libraries to Photos for OS."

He also said Photos will replace iPhoto, consolidating images into one photo library for editing and searching.

Aperture will be updated to run on OS X, Apple said. The company is also working on way for Aperture and iPhoto users to migrate to Photos. Initial reports that Apple was working with Adobe to make it easier to transition to Lightroom have not been confirmed.

Apple said it would continue development of Logic Pro and Final Cut Pro, two other pro apps.
