Apple ‘homeOS’ Mentioned in Job Listing Ahead of WWDC

An Apple job listing has mentioned “homeOS,” an otherwise never-before heard of Apple operating system, ahead of WWDC next week.


Spotted by developer Javier Lacort, the Apple job listing explicitly mentions “homeOS” on two occasions, alongside Apple’s other operating systems including iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

Interestingly, the job listing mentions homeOS as a “mobile operating system.”

The operating system could simply be a rebranding of its current smart home software, in much the same way iOS for iPad was rebranded iPadOS and OS X was changed to macOS, or potentially an entirely new OS.

Apple’s homeOS could feasibly debut as soon as next week at WWDC, where Apple is expected to unveil major updates to its various operating systems.
