Apple will hold the WWDC 2020 Developer Conference on June 22, when it will release new versions of iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7, tvOS, macOS and other new systems. However, the Twitter news source @Jon Prosser, who has always been more accurate, suddenly made a Tweet “iPhone OS”, suggesting that iOS 14 will be renamed. But whether it will change or not depends on WWDC.
Another source @Max Weinbach commented, “I received a random email saying that Apple will rename iOS to iPhone OS and iPhone to Apple Phone, but I don’t believe…”
However, the word “iPhone” is still clearly used on Apple’s official website, but the Apple logo is added in front. For example, Apple Watch often writes this way.
In some file information, the words iPhoneOS 14.0 appear. Some web users reminded that the wording “iPhone OS” has been used internally in the iOS system.
Isn’t iOS the iPhone OS? In fact, the first generation of iPhone is equipped with iPhone OS. Later, it was applied to iPod touch and iPad.
On June 17, 2009, with the release of the iPhone 3GS, Apple officially released the iPhone OS 3 system, which supports previous iPhone device upgrades, but old iPod Touch users need to pay to upgrade. This is also the last system named after the iPhone OS. A generation of systems began to be named after iOS, that is iOS 4.
