Mac OS X and macOS name meaning


As you can see in the list above, except the first OS X beta, from 2001 to 2012, all operating system versions of Mac were named after the great Fellinspecies from the leopard to the Black Panther and the Mountain Lion.

OS X 10.3 - Panther

Public is released as a leopard, but operating systems are named after the wine (except for OS X 10.6 and macOS 10.13, both versions are unnamed).


Their inner names remained as alcohol until 2014, after their names were changed from cats to cats in California in 2013. In 2015, Apple decided to rename the above for the operating system. To name the apple (what an "adventurous" decision).



macOS Catalina




However, apple is fed up with apples in 2019 and loves cats with the Catalina version.

In 2016, Apple named the operating system brands, so it changed the Mac OS X to Mac OS for tone with iOS, TVOS and WatchOS.


What is the latest macOS operating system?


Apple will launch the official version of macOS Big Sur or macOS 11 in the fall of 2020.
