    It's probably to early for any actual rumours around this, so just as an opinion poll:

    Who thinks they will use the release of iOS 11 next year to finally move macOS to version 11 as well? It would make commercial sense to have iOS, tvOS and macOS on the same version number, even if the underlying technologies are quite different... What do you think?

    Tim Cook: We know that some people have worried that we're not paying enough attention to the Mac. We want allay those concerns once and for all, and as proof, this year we're introducing macOS 11. The first totally new operating system release in over fifteen years.

    Marty DiBergi: Oh, I see. So you're taking a big step forward from macOS 10?

    Tim Cook: Exactly.

    Marty DiBergi: Does that mean major changes to the kernel? The user interface? AI?

    Tim Cook: Well, it's one higher, isn't it? You see, for the last few years, we've been at ten. And Mac users, they've gotten tired of that. They feel like macOS is stuck. Where can you go from there? Where?

    Marty DiBergi: I don't know.

    Tim Cook: Nowhere. Exactly. What we're doing is, since we need to give macOS an extra push over the cliff, you know what we're going to do?

    Marty DiBergi: Put it up to eleven.

    Tim Cook: Eleven. Exactly. One version higher.

    Marty DiBergi: So what does this actually do for Mac users? Is it better? Faster? Easier to find things? More emojis? Have you really done anything to improve the Mac platform?

    Tim Cook: it goes to eleven.

    With how the yearly releases are going, I hope we don't get 11 until Mac gets a massive improvement from where we are today.
    I don't complain as much as people do on these forums about Mac, and everything works really well for me, but its clear that the .1 releases are not as big as they used to be. I used to be thrilled to get a new Mac version and now.. Not anymore.

    Plus the fact that they are in sync with iPhone OS updates bothers me to no end. Seems like they push the team to meet their deadlines instead of working on improvements and new functionalities.

    When Apple gives proper attention to the Mac line once again, I will be excited to see a new Mac version. Until then, we will get new Touch Bar addons.
