A "macOS" reference discovered in 10.11.4

  • iOS, tvOS, watchOS and ... macOS, a next back-to-the-future move for Apple?

After the recent Pike R. Alpha discovery about new "MacBook 9,1" frequency data in the latest OS X 10.11.4 release, this time a new reference to "macOS" has been discovered by another developer Guilherme Rambo.




The framework can be found in OS X 10.11.4 at

"/System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/FlightUtilities.framework" and was later independently verified by MacMagazine, which speculated that the next release could be "macOS 11" instead of OS X 10.12.


What do you think?

Following the logic with El Capitan, the new OS is expected to look more like the iOS design. And certainly one day, we should have a single common design for all OS's.


And to be even more crazy, a single operating system for all devices.   :drool:


Wait, we do not want ARM to take over on macs right? 

btw i think that original aqua was awesome!
