    WWDC 2016 is coming up fast and that means the latest Mac operating system will be release. What do you think OS X 10.12 will be called?

    With El Capitan at only .3, I doubt 12 is coming this year.

    I doubt they use Death Valley at all. The "OS X Death" trolls would be ridiculous.

    I would be willing to bet three fiddy you will see OS X 10.12 this fall.

    There have been several rumor posts on this already, including this one today.

    I would have no idea what the new name would be but voted anyhow. Big Sur sounds good to me.

    It will be called, 'Mac OSX-let's-release-another-and-shorten-the-list-of-Macs-that-can-run-it.'

    I seriously hope the 2007 iMacs and such can run it. They better improve the efficiency even more; we need smoother, more efficient graphics. Safari is also a mess.

    There will never be an OS called OS X 10.12. Apple will morph the naming scheme to macOS… And why not? There's iOS, watchOS, and tvOS. macOS is the next logical step. The added benefit is that it removes numbering, which will get more confusing than it already is when iOS 10.0 is released.

    My money is on "macOS Chavez Ravine." :rolleyes:

    Highly unlikely, as OS X has always been used to differentiate between Mac OS (Which already exist) and Mac OS X (Now branded OS X).


    While I do think they'll remove some machines this year, I don't see why you are so negative about it. Apple hasn't shortened the list since Mavericks.

    It's apparently gonna be called 'Fuji.' I'd rather have it be called 'Monterey.'

    Fuji is an internal code-name only. I vote for Monterey.

    It's well known, and it's head to head with some mobile OS that will also be named with something that starts with N.

    I always felt it still would be a park inside of California or a famous destination.

    Redwood is a type of tree, not a destination, unless you're going to Redwood City, which triggers visions of… well not much of anything, unless it's home.

    If Apple sticks with California place names it needs to go big, as in Big Sur or Lake Tahoe. Those responsible for naming the next OS might find Eureka a good fit if they're interested in a small town on the North Coast. I still think the next name will reflect Southern California, Malibu (overused?) or Palm Springs are suitable. San Francisco is a font; so Los Angeles could be the next.

    In any case, I'm anxious to drop the "Oh-Ess Ten, Ten Point ??" moniker. It's unwieldy and lacks pizzazz. MacOS (place name) sounds just right.
