macOS 12 to be ‘a more muted update’

The rumor: The next version of macOS will be a smaller update, according to Mark Gurman (88.7% accurate, via Bloomberg’s Power Up).

  • “For the Mac, expect a more muted update after the operating system was redesigned with macOS Big Sur last year” Gurman says
  • Rumors have pointed to this year’s macOS 12 update being coined “Monterey” or “Mammoth”

Our take: A smaller, more focused update makes a lot of sense with Big Sur releasing last year. Plus, the main Mac focus this year is hardware, anyway.
