    What do you think? Will it stop at X then have a name after it rather than 9, 10 ,11 etc?

    Who knows.

    I'm more concerned though it Apple will start going Mac OS 10.10, 10.11, 10.12, etc. or if we'll finally see Mac OS XI.

    Anyways, i'm sure they'll probably do iOS 10, 11, 12, but only time will tell.

    Maybe I would kinda like it. You can't have iOS 51 it just can't happen. Say goes for the iPhone you can't say your coming out with iPhone 25s it just gets old they will start naming them something else sooner or later.

    Apple isn't using the roman numeral nomenclature for iOS so they can go to iOS 10 without causing any confusion.

    Apple will just call It OSX 10 rather than OS 10.10. Same goes for iPhone. iOS 10

    If I had to take a guess, eventually they're going to merge into one OS. There won't be distinct OS's in 5 years or so.

    I highly doubt that. Just my opinion though.

    Like I said, won't be for a little while, but they're gonna try and turn the devices into, essentially, different sized versions of one system.

    OS X is a brand name. The fact it's got a Roman numeral in it doesn't mean anything anymore.

    Whenever they release 10.10, it'll be known as OS X (insert name), like Mountain Lion, Mavericks etc.

    Just my opinion.

    That's completely stupid. It should be 10.10.
