Apple Hints at ‘MacOS’ Name Change on Dedicated Environmental Webpage

Just a few weeks ago, the first hint that Apple could be considering changing things up as far as the naming scheme for OS X goes. And now Apple’s hinting at it yet again.

Earlier today, Apple began its focus on Earth Day, changing its signs to green, launching a promotion for apps and the World Wildlife Foundation, and, launching a dedicated page outlining Apple’s environmental focus. On that page, Apple uses “MacOS” instead of using “OS X” to describe its desktop operating system. It’s not a secret right now that MacOS isn’t the name of its desktop platform, so this would seem to suggest that a change is coming.

Specifically, Apple goes to include not only MacOS, but also iOS, tvOS, and watchOS. It wouldn’t be all that surprising to see Apple bring its desktop platform more in line with its other platforms, as far as the naming scheme goes.

It’s possible, if not likely, that Apple will unveil this change at this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference 2016, which will take place in June.

This hint, which is published directly for the public to see, is probably the biggest hint that we’ve seen so far that this is a change that is indeed on the way.

What do you think of the name change?
