Microsoft continues to court iOS developers with new domain purchases

After the smoke and crowds have cleared, some viewed Microsoft’s //Build/ 2015 conference as a love letter to developers, specifically Android and iOS developers. Some critics have been left unsmitten by the love letter and are instead analyzing the message like a scorned ex-lover. At best, developers and journalist have showed cautious interest into the finer details about how Microsoft plans to implement their new dev environments. At worst, the same level of apathy towards Windows development remains. Now that Microsoft has happily announced the exact ship date for Windows 10, held an exhaustive developers conference and begun the final stretch of Windows development, the company is putting the final touches in place.

To help make sure cross-platform developers are clear about Microsoft’s development intentions, Microsoft has purchased the following domains according to a tipped source:

  • microsoftlovesappledevelopers.com
  • microsoftlovesappledevelopers.net
  • microsoftlovesappledevs.com
  • microsoftlovesappledevs.net
  • microsoftlovesiosdevs.com
  • microsoftlovesiosdevs.net
  • mslovesappledevs.com
  • mslovesappledevs.net
  • mslovesiosdevs.com
  • mslovesiosdevs.net

In and of themselves, the domains don’t amount to much use beyond brand awareness and publicity. However, if Microsoft decided to build a campaign around courting new Apple devs, having these domains and destination could prove important for Microsoft. We’ll have to keep an eye out for similar Android related material, as Microsoft’s cross-platform extends to that community just the same.
