As expected, Apple has once again done what it always does at its very best. By replacing OS X with macOS, it has not only simplified the name of OS that powers up Macs but also added a lot of highly user-friendly features such as, Siri, Universal Clipboard and more.
“OS X the name has been with us for over 15 years, and it’s served us well. We realized there’s a name that’s so much clearer, and so much simpler.” Renamed to macOS!
