Apple is reportedly looking to install a new operating system on a Mac, with some reports saying it will also allow users to install the desktop environment on its Macs.
According to MacRumors, a Mac user has posted on Reddit that the company is planning to install an operating system called Electron on the company’s Macs, which is expected to be unveiled later this year.
Electron, which has been in development for more than a year, will enable developers to build apps that run on any Mac running macOS High Sierra.
It will be able to run on all Macs and computers with a single graphics card and be fully compatible with the Macs built-in Touch Bar.
Apple has not revealed the exact specs of Electron, but it is reportedly said to support OpenGL 4.5.
The MacRumor report said Electron will support the following Macs:A Macbook Air, A10-7850K, A11-8700, A12-9800, and A13-9200.
Apple’s MacRumories report does not specify what Electron’s exact specs will be, but we can presume that the operating system will run on machines with a Quad-Core processor and at least 128GB of RAM.
Apple recently announced that its Mac users would be able use Touch Bar on its new Macs after an initial trial period.
Apple also plans to begin shipping Touch Bar-equipped Macs to developers later this month.
