Rumors of a major UI revamp for OS X pop up, could be revealed at WWDC

Apple revamped the look of iOS last fall and now a new report claims the company is going to launch a major redesign for OS X for a launch later in 2014. The new look is supposed to be revealed at this June's WWDC 2014 event in San Francisco.

9to5Mac reports, via unnamed sources, that OS X 10.10 will include a toggle design similar to iOS 7, along with sharper window corners and more defined icons and white space than OS 10.9. However, the report adds that OS 10.10 will still have a number of features that make it different than iOS and that Apple will continue to keep its desktop operating system separate from the one used for the iPhone and iPad.

As to what the official branding name for OS 10.10 will be, Apple has apparently been buying up trademarks for names like Yosemite, Mammoth, and Diablo, and one of them could be used as label for the operating system. The same story also claims that Apple may push one or more major features planned for iOS 8 to iOS 8.1, due to the company's push to get OS 10.10 ready for launch.
