Leaks say Apple to rename iOS to iPhone OS in its upcoming iPhone 12
2020 probably seems to be a challenging year for Apple as the company has leaked the iPhone 12 price and much more. Moreover, this weak apple has gone through many errors like the iPhone SE’s weakness, how to crash an iPhone with a message, more Mail vulnerabilities in iOS, FaceID adapts to face masks, Microsoft’s multi-window support for iPad, and the magical things MacOS cannot do.
Earlier we saw Apple Watcher Jon Prosser leaked the upcoming iPhone 12 specifications and details and now he indicates “iPhone OS” in his tweet last night. The previous leak from Jon says that the iPhone 12 series all models will have 5G support, The 5.4-inch iPhone 12 which has a codenamed D52G which will have an OLED display, two rear cameras, and 5G support. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 with codenamed D53G which has OLED display, two cameras, and 5G support. Moreover, iPhone 12 Pro with codenamed D53P will have a 6.1-inch OLED display, three rear cameras, a LiDAR sensor, and it has support for 5G.

This is the tweet posted by Jon Prosser on June 18th, the Apple watcher has leaked many specs and details before which have been true later.
At this point, iOS is the only operating system that doesn’t have the name of the product that it’s supposed to run on in its name. Apple has also renamed Mac OS X to macOS a few years ago, before also renaming the iPad version of iOS to iPadOS. However, the company named its TV and watches as based on the name from the day of the launch as tvOS and watchOS, so the left operating system is iOS.
So while at first glance going back to iPhone OS doesn’t make much sense, it’s something that could help Apple in the long term and create more consistency across the entire lineup. For more news on tech and cybersecurity stay tuned at Android Rookies by subscribing to our newsletter from here
