APIs for OS X 10.10, iOS 8 appear in open-source WebKit channels

updated 11:50 am EDT, Mon June 2, 2014

May hint at simpler cross-platform compatibility

New developer APIs for OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 are already being pushed to open-source channels for WebKit, users note. A new class involves a view that replaces the current OS X and iOS support for displaying inline content. It's believed to include cross-platform compatibility, eliminating the need to use "WebView" for OS X and "UIWebView" for iOS. At the same time though, some separate view classes remain, meaning that the platforms are still not thoroughly meshed.

Apple is only due to reveal OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 later today, at its WWDC 2014 keynote from San Francisco. The event will be streamed live for people who can't attend in person. The company usually reserves publishing open-source content until after a related product has been announced, which in this case is the Safari web browser.
