OS X 10.10, which Apple is expected to show at its Worldwide Developers Conference Monday morning, could very well be named after one of California’s most well-known national parks. While setting up for WWDC at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Apple has put up a banner for the next version of OS X that features Yosemite in the background.
Apple switched from cat names to popular California spots with OS X Mavericks last year. Filings show that Apple has indeed trademarked Yosemite along with names like Redwood, Miramar, Condor, Sierra, and Mojave.
The rock formation featured in the above banner is probably El Cap in Yosemite, which Apple has also trademarked. OS X El Cap doesn’t sound quite as good as Yosemite, so we’re hoping that Apple goes with the latter.
OS X 10.10 is expected to feature a pretty big redesign akin to what iOS 7 was to iOS 6.
The name “Yosemite” means “those who kill” and refers to the Yosemite Valley Miwok tribe. So OS X 10 may indeed be a killer release.

Apple has also put up a big, watery banner for iOS 8 in Moscone.
