Apple could change the name of its desktop operating system, going from being called OS X to simply MacOS, thus following the line of operating systems it has for the rest of its devices: iOS, watchOS, tvOS.
Although it is still a rumor, according to the numerous evidences that have been appearing over time, it has been gaining strength, especially since last Thursday a website was launched where the company describes all the environmental initiatives it has carried out. out, pointing to your desktop system like MacOS instead of OS X.
That is, shortly after this slip and the company has proceeded to correct it after a while and refer to its desktop operating system as OS X.It should be noted that it is in 2012 when Apple decided to shorten the name of its Mac OS X operating system to simply OS X, which is the one that has been used until now. The new name would unite the Mac brand with OS becoming a single word and starting with a capital letter, as pointed out by 9to5Mac and thus was seen in the screenshot.
The reason why MacOS started with a capital letter and the rest of the operating systems is not, as we have indicated, that Mac is a brand of Apple while watch as tv are generic names.
In any case, it will be in June, at the Apple developer conference, WWDC 2016, as TechCruch has been able to know, when you get out of doubt and see if Apple finally opts for MacOS since then as the official name for its desktop operating system. . Likewise, this possible change is a symptom of what is to come and it may not be another update as it has been happening throughout these years.
In any case, you have to be patient until the day of the Apple keynote.
