    When it comes to ships and buildings usually the 13th floor, or deck is skipped, because 13 is considered an unluicky number. Was wondering if Apple is the same way. So, will there be a bionic 13 chip and iOS 13, or will it be skipped to 14?

    We had macOS 10.13 (High Sierra), so I doubt they're influenced by, frankly, silly superstitions such as an unlucky number 13.

    Strange topic. And I don’t see Apple sharing your viewpoint with a fear of a number in relation to a processor.

    I highly doubt anyone at Apple has given this any thought at all

    For sure, but it sucks when everyone else has seen Friends and has also heard the same word and the definition.

    In fact, I think Apple might have a fear of triscuits :D

    I've been in quite a few buildings with a 13th floor. It's irrational to not have one in a tall building. I don't see Apple giving in to nonsense.

    Can someone point me to a source where this 13 number issue started from?! I see it everywhere.

    Is it related to Friday the 13th?!

    Some potential origins are mentioned at https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triskaidekaphobia
