The latest development in the ongoing saga between Microsoft and Apple over the future of Windows is that the companies are developing an app store for the Apple device that would allow users to download and install apps on the device from within Microsoft apps.
The app store would allow Microsoft users to install the Microsoft Windows apps on Apple TVs that already have the Apple ecosystem installed, but the app store could also work on other Apple devices.
Microsoft, however, wants Apple to keep control over its own app store in order to get the same level of control over the software as the company would for Windows.
Apple has not yet made an official announcement of the app-store partnership.
The new app-exchange would not replace the existing Microsoft app store, but it would allow Apple to provide updates and other features that Microsoft is already providing on the platform.
Apple also recently launched its own App Store in the US.
That app store is separate from the official Windows app store and allows users to buy and download apps directly from the app on their own devices.
Microsoft has been developing its own Windows Store for some time.
Its Windows 10 Store is a platform that developers can use to publish apps for Windows, but that platform also has a Windows app-creator community.
This community allows developers to build apps for the platform, and those developers are encouraged to make apps for Apple devices and other Windows devices.
