The last week of March begins, the month ends and even though we did not have a keynote, the brand of the bitten apple makes news even without wanting it, and today we are telling you about the WebKit code and like this they contain references from iOS 15 and of course macOS 12 below.
The WebKit code, which is Apple’s open source, was recently updated by the Cupertino giant to include references to software updates, however, this says more than it seems since it includes iOS 15 and macOS 12. Despite that the WebKit code generally refers to future versions as “TBA” for hide actual version numbers, leaves enough clues.
While we all await the official announcement from Apple for WWDC 2021, it was confirmed that the mentions of iOS 15 and macOS 12 are already added to the open source WebKit repositoryThese were added under the confirmation message “Update WKWebView getUserMedia delegated to latest proposal”, by an Apple employee who works on WebKit technology.
However, unfortunately this mention of WebKit contains no hints of what we could expect from this year’s updates to iOS and macOS. On the other hand, these references could suggest the likely apple brand name plans for the iOS and macOS updates that we will see at WWDC this year.
Although the marketing names of future operating systems do not necessarily reflect what is used in the code, below are the first references of macOS 12.0 and iOS 15.0, remember that the WebKit code calls future versions as “TBA” to hide their real numbers for the respective version.
The WebKit code brings references to the updates but does not tell us what we will see in them
The macOS case is particularly notable because Apple jumped from macOS 10.15 Catalina to macOS 11 Big Sur, and this generated a notable change for macOS naming conventions, a major change for the first time since the introduction of Mac OS X in 2000.
