Apple has already started working on its iOS 19, macOS 16, watchOS 12, and visionOS 3 software updates for release in 2025, according to Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman.

Gurman’s comments came in the most recent edition of his “Power On” newsletter. Gurman said that Apple has formally begun development of its major operating systems for 2025, carrying the codenames “Luck” for iOS 19, “Cheer” for macOS 16, “Nepali” for watchOS 12, and “Discovery” for ‌visionOS‌ 3.

Apple traditionally begins work on the next year’s operating systems soon after the current year’s upcoming operating systems have been previewed. This allows the company plenty of time to get new features ready for the next year’s device lineup.

Gurman also mentioned that Apple’s Vision Pro headset should receive Apple Intelligence as soon as 2025. Meanwhile, Apple is currently working to ready the public betas of iOS 18‌, macOS 15 Sequoia, ‌watchOS 11‌, and ‌visionOS 2‌ for release sometime this month. The release versions of the new operating systems should see a public release sometime this fall.
