Apple Already Working On iOS 19, macOS 16, And More For A 2025 Launch

Apple might have only announced the iOS 18 and other software updates to the world during the WWDC opening event on June 10, but the company is already hard at work on what comes next according to a new report.

The new software updates announced at WWDC are now available in developer beta form but won’t be released to the public for another couple of months.

However, writing in his weekly Power On newsletter Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman says that Apple has already begun work on the next round of software updates ahead of an expected 2025 release.

The company has formally begun work on 2025’s major operating systems: iOS 19 (“Luck”), macOS 16 (“Cheer”), watchOS 12 (“Nepali) and visionOS 3 (“Discovery”).

Gurman says that while this might seem early, Apple “is already developing next year’s hardware products and needs the accompanying software to start testing the devices.”

However, it’s worth noting that development is still at such an early stage that it is impossible to know what new features the updates will bring to Apple’s platforms including the iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Apple Vision Pro.

As for the iOS 18 update and the rest of Apple’s big 2024 launches, we expect that they will be released to the public in or around September. Those launches will then most likely coincide with the release of the iPhone 16 and iPhone 16 Pro alongside the Apple Watch X and a refreshed Apple Watch Ultra model.
