WWDC 2014 banners suggest the name OS X Yosemite

WWDC 2014 banners suggest the name OS X Yosemite

Those WWDC 2014 banners keep going up and the latest looks a lot like El Capitan in Yosemite. Does that mean we'll be seeing OS X 10.10 Yosemite come Monday? With Apple nothing is certain until it's certain, but it's certainly a California landmark and a fitting choice of name for the next generation in Mac operating systems.

Last year was the first of the new naming convention, which replaced the big cats and OS X Mountain Lion with California locations and OS X Mavericks. OS X 10.10, currently codenamed Syrah, is supposed to be getting a lot of attention this year, including a redesign and perhaps some major work on developer-facing APIs. Yosemite is certainly a big name for a big change.

We'll find out for sure Monday starting at 10am PDT and iMore will be at the keynote live. In the meantime, let me know what you think!

Expect some "huge" and "majestic" changes with OS X Yosemite! iOS 7 design is coming to OS X

Premium1 says:

Is it going to be a free upgrade again like mavericks?

MikhailT says:

Yes, OS X will be free forever. That's the whole reason they emphasized this at last year's WWDC when they announced they were going to revolutionize the OS pricing.

Rowanova says:

If that's really going to be the name, I like it. Sounds cool

Larry Gouger says:

Could be simply OSX El Capitan, unless you see more sights from Yosemite.

Jay Mobile says:

It's gonna be called OS X iMore 10.10

Apple will later add an OS extension called Synchronous Adaptive Mode that will let the OS X work seamlessly with iOS 8. Expect to hear the announcement later this year: Yosemite S.A.M. and the banner will read “Say yer prayers ya long eared galoot!”

Tricorius says:

I, for one, am going to get a fancy high-fallootin' set of Yosemite S.A.M. mud flaps.

counterculture says:

Personally, this makes me really excited, potential redesign and all. And the stock wallpaper will look great on a retina iMac/MacBook Air ;-)

Well I won't be trying to pronounce it after this. I'll stick with OS X. Yosetimiee. Oh well. Can't wait for Monday to roll in. I'm stoked.

Connor Mason says:

I like the ring to it, but as an honest question, why did they stop with OSX? Now that we're at 10.10, it just sounds kinda goofy. It seems like they're stuck in a path where if they were to change it to OSXI, it would imply a massive update, which is not coming anytime soon as far as we know.

Yosemite Sam will be the new mascot. :D

You could ask the same thing about every banner. Why did the iOS 7 banner have loads of dots. Why did the iOS banner have a watery banner.

June 30th 2014 marks the 150th anniversary of Lincoln's signing of the Yosemite Grant Act.
