Apple trademark filings show potential names for macOS 10.14: Mojave, Sequoia, Ventura, Sonoma

“A series of trademark applications Apple filed in Cambodia and the Philippines may point towards the name we can expect to see used for macOS 10.14, the next-generation version of macOS that Apple will unveil at the Worldwide Developers Conference in June,” Juli Clover reports for MacRumors.

“In the two countries, using a presumed shell company, Apple has filed several new trademarks on a series of California landmark names that originally surfaced in 2014,” Clover reports. “In the Philippines, Apple has filed trademark applications for Mojave, Sequoia, Sonoma, and Ventura, while in Cambodia, Apple has filed a trademark for Mojave alone.”

“These new filings suggest one of these four names could be used for macOS 10.14,” Clover reports. “Given that Mojave is the name that was filed in both locations, it could be Apple’s frontrunner.”

MacDailyNews Take: Apple’s macOS 10.14 Mojave runs best on the Mac Pro… because it’s been deserted!



  1. “What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
    by any other name would smell as sweet.”
    — William Shakespeare

    What Apple calls it is really minor. How it works is far more important …

  2. “And to all our Apple users, Mojave will not run on the Mac mini because the specs aren’t good enough…we are so sorry…” ~ Apple

  3. I’m still using El Capitan and it’s fine for what I use my iMac for. I looked at Sierra’s features and decided that none of them were worth upgrading. As for High Sierra it’s a problem not worth having.

    So now Apple’s giving us a peek at OS10.14. Given their track record I guess I’ll be sticking with the “El Cap” for a good while longer. However, each user can make up their own mind but IMHO don’t jump in until there’s a .3 at the end of the number because you’re just asking for trouble.

    1. I have El Cap running on three Macs and it’s still great. (Of course those 3 machines can’t run anything higher anyway but developers still include it as compatible with most modern software.)
