Last week Apple accidentally let slip on renaming its desktop operating system. With the release of version 10.12 of the platform will be called macOS instead of OS X. recently, the company strives to unify the names of their software and hardware products, so the rebranding of the “OSes” should not be a surprise.
The main innovation in OS is considered the voice assistant Siri. To date, Siri was limited to iOS, tvOS and watchOS.

The function is similar with Siri on iOS to use the power of cloud servers for empowerment.

The service should offer 25 channels, including premium cable, and the cost of a monthly subscription in the US is 30 to 40 dollars.
There are several reasons why Apple would want to get involved in competition with Netflix or HBO on the market entertaining video content. One of them is the growth of quotations of the company’s shares, which over the past three months showed downward trend. In addition, the launch of the new service will help to increase sales of set-top boxes Apple TV.
At WWDC 2016, Apple plans to introduce new cloud services and also to announce the transition to our own infrastructure.
