Thanks MN! As I wrote in the article, I think it's possible that Jetpack Compose will eventually be ported to iOS, but very likely not by Google.

JetpackCompose is not Google's attempt to create a cross-platform UI toolkit, as in the case of Flutter.

JetpackCompose is actually based on Android view's canvas (API 21). This is also the reason why it's possible to mix JetpackCompose with existing Android views. It's actually the Android view-based system itself which is rendered by Skia.

However, Compose's compilation mechanism is platform-independent, based on the Kotlin compiler. That's why efforts by JetBrains have already started to port Compose to different platforms.
