DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that the versions in Apple's macOS series of operating systems used to be named after the big members of the cat species? In 2001, Apple released the first desktop version of its operating system as Mac OS X 10.0, or Cheetah, after the large springy cat recognized as the fastest land animal in the world. Later that year Apple brought out the Puma, then launched the Jaguar version, named after the largest wild cat in the Americas, the following year. The Panther version was released in 2003 and was followed by the Tiger in 2005. The Leopard and the Snow Leopard versions were released in 2007 and 2009, and Apple decided to honor the King of the Jungle in 2010 and named the eight version of the macOS as the Lion.
In 2013, Apple decided to rebrand and name the OS after landmarks in California, starting with version 10.9, Mavericks, named after the wavy surfer destination in Pillar Point California. The latest version of Apple's OS is named High Sierra, after the snow-capped mountain ranges in Central California.
