WWDC 2014 is kicking off next week, and whether you’re a fan or detractor of Apple’s products, well safe to say that both sides are curious to see what Apple could be bringing to the table. Now we know that iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 will most likely be announced, but thanks to a banner spotted by the folks at The Verge, there is a good chance that Apple could be launching OS X 10.10 as Yosemite. This is according to the banner which shows off scenery that looks like it came from the Yosemite national park in California. This seems to be in line with Apple’s recent naming scheme, starting with OS X 10.9 Mavericks, which is also named after a location in California.
Apple is continuing to decorate the Moscone Center ahead of its upcoming Worldwide Developers Conference, and following the addition of outside banners and the first iOS 8 banner, the inaugural OS X 10.10 banner has just appeared, with a photo courtesy of The Verge. The mountainous background of the banner suggests OS X 10.10 will be receiving a land-related name to complement the water-based name given to OS X 10.9, possibly Yosemite or El Cap, as the image appears to feature the national park’s El Capitan rock formation. We detailed some of the names Apple has apparently filed for trademarks on back in April. Some trademarked land-themed names include Yosemite, Redwood, Mammoth, California, Diablo, Miramar, El Cap, Redtail, Condor, Grizzly, Tiburon, Skyline, Shasta, and Sierra.Newly discovered trademarked names also include Mojave, Sonoma, Ventura, and Sequoia.
