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!
