During the WWDC 2020 presentation in June this year, Apple announced macOS Big Sur. In addition to all the innovations, the company changed the major version number of the operating system from 10.x to 11.x – for the first time in 19 years.

Reddit user with nickname guhamoli drew attention to a fragment of the WWDC 2005 presentation, in which Steve Jobs talks about the transition of Mac computers to Intel processors. The Apple co-founder’s phrase reveals the reason for this approach to version numbering on the desktop platform.

OS 10 is the most advanced operating system on the planet, and it’s designed by Apple for the next 20 years.

Mac OS X 10.0 Cheetah (the predecessor of macOS) was released on March 24, 2001, macOS 11.0 Big Sur has not yet been released, but more than 19 years have passed.

macOS Big Sur features a redesigned look and feel, including standardized app icons, new features in Safari and Messages, improved privacy settings, and more.
