Apple shifts development efforts towards Syrah
Web traffic from the unreleased OS X 10.10 has spiked during the last week, according to data shared by AppleInsider. Although traffic was reportedly growing slowly throughout the month of October, a surge appears to have taken place after the launch of OS X Mavericks. It may suggest that with Mavericks feature-complete, Apple is beginning to shift more workers to v10.10 development.
OS X 10.10 is believed to have begun small-scale seeding at Apple in September, under the internal codename "Syrah." Little else is known about the software, but Apple is expected to give it a visual overhaul to resemble iOS 7. It will likely ship in about a year from now, in keeping with Apple's newly standard annual OS X upgrade cycle.
