Following 20 Years of 10.x, macOS 11.x May Just Last For a Year
WebKit code focuses on macOS 12 showing up this year.
After almost twenty years and 16 forms wherein the new yearly arrival of OS X and macOS would augment the decimal spot (10.0 through 10.15), Apple is prepared to proceed onward. As per WebKit code spotted by 9to5Mac, the following variant of macOS will not be 11.1 as we would normally expect, yet macOS 12. It’s not yet known whether Apple will keep on naming it after a California regular milestone.
Apple didn’t overplay at last moving from adaptation 10.x to 11 with Big Sur, and with the dispatch of the primary Apple silicon Macs, it seemed well and good to begin new. Yet, we likewise expected Apple would follow the very numbering framework that it did with Mac OS X (10.0 through 10.11) and macOS (10.12 through 10.15), which means the current year’s delivery would be macOS 11.1.
That boat cruised in December when Apple delivered macOS 11.1 and has since delivered macOS 11.2 and is on the cusp of delivering 11.3. It would seem that Apple presently expects to increase the entire number each year, with highlight refreshes augmenting the decimal spot, and bug/security fixes getting a subsequent decimal “point discharge” like 11.2.1.
As per 9to5Mac, notices of iOS 15 and macOS 12 were as of late added to the open-source WebKit store by an Apple worker, unequivocally recommending those are the names Apple will use in the fall when new forms show up. 9to5Mac notes that WebKit code generally names future variants of activity frameworks “TBA” to conceal form numbers.
Apple will reveal the following form of macOS and iOS at its yearly WWDC meeting during an online feature on June 7.
