What we expect
Expected to debut at WWDC this year, the new MacOS 10.15 is almost here. This will be the next major update for MacOS, not much is known at the moment, but lets go through what we know so far, and what we’re hoping to see in the not too distant future.
The main thing that we expect from MacOS 10.15 is it to see improvements to make it easier to port iOS apps to Mac, we already know that Apple is building a new universal apps feature, which we first saw in Mojave and iOS 12 and it seems they will be pushing to expand to developers in iOS 13 and MacOS 10.15. Apple has already ported several iOS apps to MacOS in MacOS Mojave and we are hoping for more to come with MacOS 10.15.
What will the new MacOS be called?
As we’ve mentioned before, MacOS 10.15 is merely a placeholder for the new MacOS, there are a few names in the running but which one could it be? First of all, let’s take a look at the names that have been trademarked by Apple and have yet to be used.
Redwood, Mammoth, California, Big Sur, Pacific, Diablo, Miramar, Rincon, Redtail, Condor, Grizzly, Farallon, Tiburon, Monterey, Skyline, Shasta, Sequoia, Ventura, and Sonoma.
These are all the names currently trademarked by Apple, but which one could be next? If I was to narrow it down, i would guess that it’s between Sequoia, Ventura and Sonoma, why? Because i feel like it would be named after a place and most likely, a place near the Mojave desert. On top of that, these three names were most recently trademarked in 2018. I will gladly eat my words when the new MacOS comes out but i would bet that the new macOS 10.15 will be named MacOs Sequoia. Really, at the moment, there is no real way of telling, I just have a feeling, so let’s wait and see.
We can almost guarantee that we will get our first look at MacOs 10.15 at WWDC 2019 which will be held on June 3-7 and we can expect a public release around Autumn 2019.
