    Hello,​

    Welcome to our Microsoft Q&A platform!

    In .NET 6, the new .NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) will be announced. .NET MAUI is the evolution of Xamarin.Forms, a cross-platform mobile first framework for Android, iOS, and UWP. You could think of this as the next major version of the same product you know today. But

    Xamarin.Forms will continue to receive service releases through November 2022.

    Check the doc: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/xamarin/the-new-net-multi-platform-app-ui-maui/#net-multi-platform-app-ui-maui

    Best Regards,

    Jarvan Zhang

    The Xamarin offers (iOS, Android, Mac) are being moved to .NET 6,

    We started the unification process in .NET 5. For that release, we chose Blazor WebAssembly as the first unified platform deliverable. It is based on the Mono runtime, uses the .NET class libraries, and .NET SDK tools. We will use the same model for iOS, and Android as we integrate Xamarin. With a unified platform, new APIs and performance improvements will be available to all developers on the same day, and work for all apps.

    If you have been working on Xamarin for years, you should follow all .NET 6 news and check out what the migration path is.
