    Hello,
    So,  you see, we all have a different reason for wanting mac to have bedrock, from missing out on fun with friends, to not being able to play on your new computer to not being able to play with your dad and enjoy yourselves together in Minecraft! It sucks. And unfortunately, not a lot of families are willing to buy another windows computer just to play Minecraft but would be willing to pay for bedrock edition on their device. So, whatever situation we are all in, we would appreciate it so so so SO much if you enable us to play our favourite game on the device we have. And it might take a while to do it but by doing so we would be thrilled and you would be making lots of people extremely happy

    Thankyou

    Please don't forget about Linux. I refuse to buy windows, just to pay to get tracked and forced to upgrade, and all the other BS that comes allong with it. I would love to play minecraft with my siblings in other cities but they all play bedrock. It would also be nice to have access to the more modern and natively optimized bedrock version as opposed to continue on the Java version

    My family like's playing minecraft bedrock with each other on there tablets and windows pc. I personaly use a linux machine and find it very frustrating that the only way I can play with them, is with a smartphone with small screen and touch controls, or getting out my slow old laptop. I would really like to be able to play minecraft bedrock from a linux machine.

    I agree with all of you, and also know the chance of this happening is quite low. Its a consequence of Microsoft owning the game. They only made it for Windows 10 because they want Windows users to upgrade to it, and Mac users to know even better how bad a gaming platform MacOS is. It's fully in their best interest to keep it this way

    So you know at this point it’s been a year and no word of anything being in development or anything being confirmed. Something dumbs going on, I suspect Microsoft has something to do with it. With Minecraft being a staple windows application now maybe they don’t want MacOS also having that. Which is absurd because of the java edition already existing but that does feel as seamless and convenient as the bedrock edition is. Honestly it’s an easy port since it’s C++ you already have the IOS app, apple makes it really easy for you to convert from IOS to MacOS so really this is all you. What are you guys up to?

    Please do this, but not at the expense of the Java Edition. I can't play with my sister which is on an iPad because of this.

    I don't know how much I can add to this thread, but I have been following the development of MacOS, and I noticed some new apps shipping with Macs in OS Mojave that are basically simple ports of iOS apps to MacOS called something like 'Marzipan' or somethin'. Honestly, if this does become available to 3rd party developers, which I expect to come this summer, the iOS version could be a simple port to Mac using this new system. Also, maybe that way we don't have to lose developers from Java! Fingers crossed!

    I completely agree, my friends have an Xbox server but my Xbox is a hassle and I love Java because of the platform its on, Mac

    Hello Mojang and Microsoft!

    Please make Minecraft for MacOS and Linux, I'll even pay again for this twice!

    I am 100% in favor of this, despite mostly playing on Windows. Cross-platform Bedrock with Mac and Linux would be great.

    Please bring Bedrock to Linux and MacOS! We'd love to see it. I want to experience the optimized Bedrock engine and play with all my friends.

    I'm with nasloan on this one. I'd love to see Bedrock available on Unix-like, but if that meant the death of Java edition, then count me out. Both versions can coexist, and both versions would reap the benefits of Bedrock on Unix-like.

     

    That said, supposedly this port has been in development for over a year, so let's hope we see the fruits of it soon. Honestly, just achieving a Linux port would be 90% of the work towards macOS, BSD, BeOS, and others. Furthermore, I fully expect that if macOS and Linux saw ports, the FOSS community would happily do the rest of the work to make an kernel- and userland-agnostic build for Unix-like OSes

    Whatever happens, PLEASE don't drop development for Java.

    I would like this to happen for the ability to play with people on ipads or similar from my computer but the main reason I want this is because the way redstone works in java edition is awful the bedrock redstone makes so much more sense and is easier to use. I don't care if java becomes a separate version of the game and still exists because many like it the way it is but personally I heavily dislike java's redstone and want to be able to play bedrock on my mac.

    Having Bedrock already on Windows, it's just a must to have it on at least Mac too. Actually it's already done with Minecraft Education, so why not do it for the game itself?

    I suspect this could happen soon for Mac due to the changes they’re making to the App Store.

    Bedrock edition has been out since 2017. It is now 2019. There is no good reason for there not to be support for Bedrock edition on systems running Mac OS. Mojang & Microsoft are alienating a whole userbase (and a large one mind you) by not allowing Bedrock edition for Mac OS. Please make this happen this year.... We've been waiting for 2 years now.

    It needs to be done. Period. Cross platform= cross platform. How better to have a leg up on the competition than putting a game on a rival platform?

    Please! My friend only has apple computers and it's very frustrating that he can't play on the realm I bought. If you can get bedrock on IOS, you sure as hell should be able to get it on Mac OS as well! You guys can easily work past the technical issues, it's just a matter of buisiness. I can tell you one thing, no one is going to buy a PC so they can play Minecraft, so quit this embargo and port it already. Otherwise your ruining the spirit of what "better together" stands for.

    MacOs 10.15 Catalina is introducing cross platform apps between iPad and Mac, meaning that we should be getting this soon.
