We previously heard a rumor that Apple would be changing the name of their Mac operating system from OS X to MacOS.
Apple is expected to announce the changes at their Worldwide Developer Conference in June, references to the new name were previously found in in some source code of OS X and now a reference to the new name has appeared on Apple’s website.
The reference was found on a page of questions and answers related to Apple’s environmental policies, although the MacOS reference has now been replaced with OS X, you can see the original excerpt below.
To model customer use, we measure the power consumed by a product while it is running in a simulated scenario. Daily usage patterns are specific to each product and are a mixture of actual and modeled customer use data. Years of use, which are based on first owners, are assumed to be four years for MacOS and tvOS devices and three years for iOS and watchOS devices.
So it looks like someone published the new name for Apple’s Mac operating system on their website a little early and then changed it back to OS X.
Apple are expected to announce the new name for their Mac operating system in June, as soon as we get some more information, we will let you guys know.
