I reckon they'll just call it Mac OS 11, to be honest.

That would be very surprising, considering they chose to get rid of the 'Mac OS' brand and replaced it with 'OS X'. And I could see OS X live on for another decade or so.

 

 


If you ask me, Apple seems afraid to change. OS X.Next won't be very much different than "Maverick" turned out to be. 

Good.

It's only good until your competitors start leaving you in the dust.

I wouldn't mind that happening.

We don't have to count on Microsoft for that in the next few years.

You're right... Because it happened almost 20 years ago.

It also happened more recently when Apple released the iPhone and the iPad. iOS is starting to drag in certain areas, but Apple already have a tablet solution, there is no benefit for them integrating a tablet focused experience into their desktop OS.

 

I should also point out that OSX already has (and has had for a good long while) very good support for gestures and full-screen apps, where they looked at ways for making those things useful for desktop users, and they didn't need to engineer a whole new platform to get them.

Most likely they will keep the "OS X" brand.  I suspect that OS X 10.10 will be a UI overhaul to make it look more consistent with the direction iOS is heading.

If they think of OS X as a brand instead of a number, they could have a OS X 11.

If they're confident to have announced a new naming scheme it's most likely they will stay with this strategy for a good couple more years. It should continue to be 10.X and version numbers will be dropped in the official name.

 

If OS XI do come along it will be a significant overhaul, so as some of you have said a OS X/iOS merge of some sorts, or a significantly new way of interacting with a desktop (TV/media hub?).

I'm genuinely curious about this. Are they going to start calling it OS XI or OS11 (or something else)? Thoughts?

If they're cool they'll create a brand new OS and call it "Cedric"
