Mac Developer: Apple combines iOS and Mac developer programs into single Apple Developer Program | 9to5Mac
Apple combines iOS and Mac developer programs into single Apple Developer Program | 9to5Mac: "Apple has ended its separate iOS and Mac developer programs that required software makers to buy two different memberships in order to publish across the company’s various platforms and replaecd them with a single combined Apple Developer Program."
Even when they were separate the membership was still cheaper than buying a codesign certificate for WinXP development from a 3rd party service provider. Or call me wrong.
The range is $200 to $500 with no assurances as to the security of the root CA. With Apple's root protecting billions in IP, I feel pretty confident the trust chain is banzai!
