Microsoft launches new app to help bring iOS apps to Windows 10

2 minute read

Microsoft is augmenting its efforts to bring iOS applications to Windows 10 with the company’s newly released tool named App Analysis Tool. It will help developers scan an iOS application and see which of its features might be incompatible with the Windows 10. In addition, the application offers instructions and tips on how to do use it effectively.

If you are an iOS developer, then you will just need the IPA file of your application. After that, you will need to scan it using the App Analysis Tool. Once the scan is complete, you will get information on how to make it a Universal Windows App for Windows 10.

The tool will provide you information in several sections, showing exactly which part of your app is not compatible with Windows 10. In addition, you will get some instructions that will help you address these issues.

Thanks to this new tool, we will most likely see more developers bringing their iOS applications to Windows 10. Currently, there are a good number of apps that have joined the Universal Windows App program, but in a few months, we will see more and more developers porting their applications to the popular operating system.

In the past, Microsoft also tried to bring Project Astoria to life, a tool that allowed Android developers to bring their applications to Windows 10. However, for some reason, the company hasn’t released that tool, instead choosing to develop the App Analysis Tool for iOS applications.

Will you use this tool to port your iOS application to Windows 10?
