With every new major version of macOS comes a new codename. Since 2013, versions of macOS have been named after beautiful places in California. So far, we’ve had: Mavericks, Yosemite, El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina, and Big Sur. It’s fun to speculate what upcoming versions...
My final guess is Monterey. This is very close to Big Sur and will be a continuation and refinement of Big Sur. Kind of like Leopard to Snow Leopard. Sierra to High Sierra etc.
That being said it doesn't look like what I was wanting. Bug fixes and stability improvements without a lot of useless new features. Similar to the transition from Leopard to Snow Leopard. Look at all the new features here on Apple's website. Makes your head spin.
New features available with macOS Monterey.
macOS Monterey builds on the same powerful foundation as macOS Big Sur, while offering distinct experiences designed just for the capabilities of Mac.
