There are several reasons why migrating a Xamarin.Forms app to .NET MAUI might be beneficial:
- Improved performance: NET MAUI introduces several performance enhancements over Xamarin.Forms, including improved startup times, faster rendering, and reduced memory usage.
- Better integration with modern UI frameworks: NET MAUI provides enhanced support for modern UI frameworks like Material Design and Cupertino, making it easier to build apps that have a native look and feel on both Android and iOS.
- Cross-platform development: .NET MAUI enables developers to build apps that run on a variety of platforms, including Android, iOS, Windows, and macOS, using a single codebase. This can significantly reduce development time and costs..
- Enhanced developer experience: .NET MAUI introduces several new tools and features that can improve the developer experience, including hot reload, better debugging, and improved integration with Visual Studio.
- Future-proofing: .NET MAUI is the future of cross-platform mobile development for .NET developers. By migrating to .NET MAUI, developers can ensure that their apps remain up-to-date and compatible with future versions of .NET and other related technologies.
- Xamarin End of Support: Xamarin support will end on May 1, 2024 for all Xamarin SDKs. Android 13 and Xcode 14 SDKs (iOS and iPadOS 16, macOS 13) will be the final versions Xamarin will target.
