Trademark filings of possible OS X 10.10 names were submitted to Trinidad and Tobago’s Intellectual Property Office on March 11 where Apple usually files its future naming assets. The application covers the names “OS X Sequoia”, “OS X Mojave”, “OS X Sonoma”, and “OS X Ventura”. Each of these names resemble a popular location in California.
However, earlier today, a banner of the OS X 10.10 appeared in Moscone Center which suggests that the operating system might be called “OS X Yosemite”. The banner, which is shown above, displays a rock formation which closely resembles the El Capitan in Yosemite valley.
As first spotted by MacRumors, Apple wasn’t mentioned in the official document but it is thought that the company is behind the filings. More interestingly, the filings also mention two cities name, Sonoma and Ventura, which are not geographic locations like Mavericks which indicates that the company might be possibly considering using city-based future naming conventions.
