Apple Once Again Refers to Unreleased 'homeOS' in Job Listing

Nov 3, 2021

Apple Once Again Refers to Unreleased 'homeOS' in Job Listing Wednesday November 3, 2021 6:36 am PDT Ahead of WWDC in June, a mention of "homeOS" was spotted in an Apple job listing, igniting suspicion that Apple would announce some significant home-based operating system at the conference. While nothing of that sort did materialize, mentions of "homeOS," a so-far never-before-heard Apple operating system, continue to surface in company job listings. In June, the job listing "homeOS" had appeared in was for a Senior iOS Engineer role on the Apple Music team. The initial job description read, "You'll get to work with system engineers across Apple, learning the inner-workings of iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and homeOS..." Shortly after the "homeOS" mention made headlines, Apple edited the description to replace homeOS with HomePod . Now, a few months later, new mentions of homeOS have emerged in similar job listings. A similar iOS engineering role on the ‌Apple Music‌ team, posted on October 12 , includes the same mention of "homeOS" that appeared in the job listing in June. The role, based out of San Diego, is also posted on Apple's regional sites, all with the mention of "homeOS." Apple currently has two central home-based operating systems, audioOS for the ‌HomePod‌, and tvOS for the Apple TV . audioOS is based on tvOS , but the two are still distinctive by name. As part of its longer-term strategy and future product plans, a "homeOS" operating system would help better unify the company's offering for the home into a single operating system, but that remains entirely speculative. Given that "homeOS" has appeared once again in another job listing, though, it's a safe bet to assume it is something that Apple has thought of but has just simply not yet made public. Alternatively, "homeOS" could be a name used by Apple internally, and might never be a public-facing software platform name. We've reached out to Apple for comment. Top Rated Comments 2 hours ago at 06:40 am Hopefully this is indicative of a greater focus/initiative. Apple's home(kit) strategy—and the quality, consistency, and stability of its related software—needs all the help it can get. Theyre going to sell Apple houses. Yearly updates include: - larger screens (windows) - multitasking (additional rooms) Theyre going to sell Apple houses. Yearly updates include: - larger screens (windows) - multitasking (additional rooms) No need for locks. FaceID at the front door. 1 hour ago at 06:59 am Apple should acquire Indigo Domotics and let them set strategy. It's amazing what they've accomplished over the years. I've been running their Mac-based automation software for years and it's superb. Super flexible and reliable. But if the rest of Apple's user software quality and strategy is any indication, this would most likely ruin Indigo Domotics. Hope this does not happen, I am fine with Indigo Domotics as they are. 1 hour ago at 07:03 am Hopefully this will involve a step in the direction of Thread or Matter or whatever the heck they call it now. Every day that passes with different ecosystems that don’t talk to each other will make it that much slower for any transition as people get further entrenched in their current system. Convenience and expense (devices already purchased) will be big hurdles. 58 minutes ago at 07:17 am Well, thanks to Foundation we are now sure they read Asimov. Ever heard of "The Last Question", a short story by Asimov? Wiki: The story deals with the development of a series of computers, Multivac, and its relationships with humanity ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_races') through the courses of seven historical settings, beginning on the day in 2061 that Earth becomes a planetary civilization ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planetary_civilization'). In each of the first six scenes, a different character presents the computer with the same question, how the threat to human existence posed by the heat death of the universe ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_death_of_the_universe') can be averted: "How can the net amount of entropy ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Entropy') of the universe be massively decreased?" That is equivalent to asking, "Can the workings of the second law of thermodynamics ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_law_of_thermodynamics') (used in the story as the increase of the entropy of the universe) be reversed?" Multivac's only response after much "thinking" is "INSUFFICIENT DATA FOR MEANINGFUL ANSWER." The story jumps forward in time into later eras of human and scientific development. In each era, someone decides to ask the ultimate "last question" regarding the reversal and decrease of entropy. Each time that Multivac's descendant is asked the question, it finds itself unable to solve the problem, and all it can answer is (linguistically increasingly-sophisticated) "THERE IS AS YET INSUFFICIENT DATA FOR A MEANINGFUL ANSWER." In the last scene, the god-like ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posthuman_God') descendant of humanity, the unified mental process of over a trillion, trillion, trillion humans who have spread throughout the universe, watches the stars flicker out, one by one, as matter and energy end, and with them, space and time. Humanity asks AC, Multivac's ultimate descendant that exists in hyperspace ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperspace') beyond the bounds of gravity or time, the entropy question one last time, before the last of humanity merges with AC and disappears. AC is still unable to answer but continues to ponder the question even after space and time cease to exist. AC ultimately realizes that it has not yet combined all of its available data in every possible combination and so begins the arduous process of rearranging and combining every last bit of information that it has gained throughout the eons and through its fusion with humanity. Eventually AC discovers the answer—that the reversal of entropy is, in fact, possible—but has nobody to report it to, since the universe is already dead. It therefore decides to answer by demonstration. The story ends with AC's pronouncement: And AC said: "LET THERE BE LIGHT! ('https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let_there_be_light')" And there was light You can’t possibly expect us to read such a long Wiki quote on here, but thanks to you I know which book to read after finishing Dune. ?
