As precedent indicates, macOS 13 will be announced at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference. This year, WWDC will take place as a virtual event running from June 6 through June 10. Apple will hold a keynote address on June 6 to kick off the event, and it’s during this keynote that we expect to receive our first look at macOS 13, alongside iOS 16, iPadOS 16, watchOS 9, and tvOS 16.
In a few days, WWDC 2022 will take place. The ceremony will herald the introduction of macOS 13, Apple’s next major software platform for the Mac, as well as the first new operating system since the company’s entire switch from Intel to its own technology. We’ve compiled a list of the most recent rumours and predictions for macOS 13 this year, including new features, release dates, and more.
As of now, internally, macOS 13 is called Rome, but it doesn’t mean much for us outsiders. Over these past years, Apple has been naming its Mac operating systems with California parks. In December, Parker Ortolani wrote about why the company is likely to call macOS 13 Mammoth: We previously reported in June  on Apple owning the trademark for “Mammoth.” In that same report, we speculated that Apple was planning to use the name “Monterey” for this year’s version of its Mac operating system and that turned out to be true. So with Mammoth being the seemingly last remaining trademark of a location in California, it’s highly likely that it is in the running for macOS 13.
Following the announcement, Apple will test the operating system for a few months until it’s released for all users around the fall, as the company has done over the past years. Different from iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS, Apple usually takes a little longer to release macOS updates to all users. Expect all of these upcoming software to be released in September, while macOS 13 will likely be available by October or November.
