We’ve been watching as banners go up at Moscone West in preparation of Apple’s WWDC developer conference on Monday, and now the company appears to have revealed “Yosemite” as the name for its next OS X release. The image, however, appears to be of El Capitan, a rock formation in Yosemite and another name Apple has reportedly trademarked as “El Cap”. For that reason, there’s a possibility Apple could go with either the El Cap or Yosemite name for 10.10 on Monday”
The banner above (Via The Verge) shows an image of what appears to be a section of Yosemite National Park in California, as pointed out by our own Michael Steeber:

Trademark filings surfaced today pointing to other possible future names for OS X including Sequoia, Mojave, Sonoma, Ventura. They join other possibilities discovered in previous trademark applications including Yosemite, Redwood, Mammoth, California, Big Sur, and Pacific, Diablo, Miramar, Rincon, El Cap, Redtail, Condor, Grizzly, Monterey, Tiburon, Farallon, Skyline, Shasta, and Sierra.
We previously revealed many of the new features and redesigned UI planned for OS X 10.10, which Apple is expected to show off for the first time on Monday alongside iOS 8.
