‘macOS’ Rebranding

Chance Miller, 9to5Mac:

It’s widely expected at this point that Apple will rebrand Mac OS X to simply ‘macOS’ next week at WWDC, but hidden in today’s announcements regarding the App Store was yet another hint at the change. In a FAQ from on the iTunes Connect website, Apple mistakenly refers to Mac OS X as ‘macOS,’ again prematurely hinting at the change.

The previous instance that leaked styled it “MacOS”, not “macOS”.

The writing on this rebrand has been on the wall ever since Phil Schiller spilled the beans on The Talk Show podcast. When it was leaked as capital-m MacOS it oddly irritated me. tvOS and watchOS are all lowercase. Why break that pattern?

Lowercase-m macOS feels right.
