Apple may rename iOS to iPhoneOS

Information points out that Apple intends to change the name of its mobile operating system, leaving the well-known iOS for iPhoneOS (Apple may rename iOS to iPhoneOS).

Last year, Apple introduced iPadOS, a special version of iOS dedicated to iPads. Before that, these devices ran on the same iOS as in iPhones, but adapted for devices with larger screens.

Now that the company’s tablets have a dedicated version, it appears that the Cupertino giant should rename its smartphones’ mobile operating system.

According to information shared by Jon Prosser, a leaker specializing in Apple products, iOS should be switched to iPhoneOS. The information was corroborated by Max Weinbach of XDA Developers , who revealed that he received an e-mail alerting that the company will actually change the name of the system.

In his post on Twitter, Max still mentions that the iPhone should be renamed to Apple Phone, but as for this change, we believe it is unlikely, given that the term “iPhone” is already consolidated in the market and is known worldwide.

Of course, this information was not confirmed by Apple, but taking into account that the WWDC 2020 conference will take place next Monday (22), it is possible that other details about the change will be revealed soon. Recalling that the event should focus on the features of iOS 14, iPadOS, watchOS and macOS.

Regarding the new mobile OS from Apple, it seems that it will be compatible with all iPhones that currently run iOS 13.
