iOS 15 and macOS 12 potentially confirmed in WebKit code
What you need to know
- WebKit code makes reference to iOS 15 and macOS 12.
- Both versions are expected to be announced at WWDC 2021.
It appears that the next version of iOS and macOS will indeed be iOS 15 and macOS 12.
While we won't see an official announcement from Apple until WWDC 2021, 9to5Mac has found reference to both new versions in the open-source WebKit code. The find is a good one as Apple usually refers to its future software versions as TBA.
The code does not, however, mention any of the features users can expect from the latest software for iPhone and Mac. While iOS 15 follows the usual naming schedule that Apple has followed in the past, macOS 12 would be notable as the company went years updating versions of OS X before the company switched to macOS 11 Big Sur last year.
Apple is expected to host another virtual WWDC this year. The company will likely announce the latest version of iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, tvOS, and macOS.
