What you need to know
- Apple has renewed its trademark on "Mammoth."
- The action could mean that it is a contender to follow macOS Monterey next year.
"Mammoth" is back in the game as a potential name for the next version of macOS.
As reported by 9to5Mac, Apple has renewed its trademark on the "Mammoth" name, indicating that it could be a contender for the new name of macOS when it releases next year.
Back in June, Apple renewed its trademarks on the names of "Mammoth" and "Monterey." The second obviously went on to become this year's version of macOS when the company announced it at WWDC21.
Since "Mammoth" continues to be renewed, it could mean that it will be the next one to expect. If so, it will hopefully mean we are in for a huge release for the Mac next year.
