Apple’s OS X 10.10 to be called ‘Yosemite’?

With WWDC 2014 set to kick off tomorrow, June 2, latest leaks have suggested that Apple’s new OS X offering, OS X 10.10, will be known as ‘Yosemite’.

Having last year ditched its big cat naming tradition in favour of OS X Mavericks, it appears that the Cupertino-based company will continue to name its Mac OS after Californian locations in 2014.

While ‘Yosemite’ might bring Warner’s gun slinging cartoon character Yosemite Sam to mind for many, the new OS X actually looks set to be named after the Yosemite National Park favoured by iconic American photographer Ansel Adams.

Ahead of Apple opening the doors to its 2014 developer conference, signage has been spotted being erected at the hosting Moscone Centre in San Francisco. One such sign is adorned by a giant X’ over a picture of Half Dome, one of the nature landmarks within Yosemite National Park.

At present there has been little insight into exactly what new feature OS X 10.10 will introduce, although with Tim Cook’s WWDC keynote set to kick off at 6pm BST tomorrow, you shouldn’t have to wait long to find out.

Yesterday further signage at the WWDC venue hinted that iOS 8 will also be showcased during the annual event.

Set to bring a range of new health and fitness capabilities to the iPhone and iPad OS, iOS 8 will reportedly be unveiled ahead of formal rollout which will coincide with the iPhone 6 release later this year.
