Last year was the banner year for iOS 7’s significant redesign and soon at WWDC 2014 we might see a whole new face for Apple’s Mac OS X.
9to5Mac reports that version 10.10 of OS X will take the major phase at Apple’s annual designer conference, and it may even overshadow iOS 8. Supposedly Apple is putting so much focus on OS X that it’s drawing iOS user interface resources to work on the desktop operating system instead.
Apple is purportedly putting OS X through an end-to-end redesign in a comparable scope to finish interface refresh iPads and iPhones saw in 2012 with iOS 7.
OS X will supposedly take on iOS 7’s toggle design to clearly specify highlighted icons and windows. Rather than applications having rounded window panels, we could see sharper shapes as well as more white area to make the operating system look a little bit less crowded.
Distinct operating systems
That’s not to say OS X 10.10 will simply fall into line with Apple’s mobile design aesthetic. Finder, multi-window multi-tasking, Mission Control, and OS X’s other desktop aspects won’t be going away.
Supposedly, Apple is keen on keeping iOS and OS X different entities.
We could see the new operating system launch this fall with a new line of hardware to go with it, as Apple typically does. So far, we have heard reports of a 12-inch MacBook without any extra classifications like ‘Air’ or ‘Pro’ connected.
The last bit of mystery behind version 10.10 is what the OS’ final name will be. Inside the brand-new variation of OS X has been circulated as ‘Syrah’ and Apple has actually been getting new hallmarks consisting of ‘Mammoth’ and ‘Diablo.’
Given that Apple called the last variation of its desktop running system after the Mavericks, a popular California surf spot, we’d not put it past the Cupertino company to christen version 10.10 ‘Yosemite.’
