Since Apple has apparently lost interest in its AppleScript and Automator scripting solutions — almost a year ago, Sal Soghoian’s position as product manager of Automation Technologies at Apple was terminated, after nearly 20 years at the company — it’s about time to offer some details on when/if Workflow will come to the Mac.
Workflow is a “personal automation tool” for iOS tool that lets you hook together apps and functions within apps in strings of commands to automate tasks. Apple loves to share features between its various operating systems, so it seems logical (to me) that Workflow is destined to become a personal automation tool for Macs, as well.
It would be cool to get some of the more complicated workflows from iOS simply synced to macOS. Whether Workflow is coming to the Mac or not, it’s time for Apple to clue us in on its scripting plans for the platform.
