Banners at Moscone Center hint at Yosemite name for OS X 10.10

yosemite-os-xIn advance of WWDC next week, Apple is continuing to outfit Moscone Center with signage for the developer-focused event. Following the placement of outside banners and interior iOS 8 signage earlier this week, the latest shots of the venue, obtained by The Verge, show the OS X 10 banners going up on the Friday before the event.

The banner contains a shot of popular landmark El Capitan, an image that indirectly confirms the California-themed name of Yosemite for Apple’s next version of OS X.

For years, Apple named its operating system after various type of large cats, including Mountain Lion, Lion and Leopard. Apple switched gears last year, adopting the name Mavericks, in recognition of the popular California surfing spot.

Apple is expected to unveil OS X 10.10 next week at WWDC. The next version of the desktop operating system may be a dramatic change from current iterations, now that Jony Ive has been put in charge of the design of the software.
