Rumors suggests that Apple might rename its OS X operating system from Mac OS X to MacOS, as a matter of fact information gotten from Apple’s website may have proved this motive right. The Cupertino based company for the first time publicly referred to its desktop operating system as “MacOS” instead of OS X.

Although Apple has now updated the page removing MacOS and replacing it with OS X, no reference was made to “OS X” of any kind before then. Apart from this evidence, the term “macOS” was found in Apple’s OS X 10.11.4 update which was distributed to users on March 21. For years OS X has been the standard for the operating system used in Macs, even before these rumors, earlier reports suggested Apple might re-brand its desktop platform to bring it in line with its iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Every year a new name is revealed for the OS X, last year was El Capitan, If OS X will indeed transform into MacOS, then it would be the first time that Apple will make such a change, as with all speculations we are not certain about this yet, we can perhaps expect the announcement to be made when the next version is unveiled to the public.
