An Apple Music job posting refers to a previously unknown “homeOS” in its listing of Apple’s mobile platforms.

A previously unannounced additional “homeOS” platform has been mentioned in the job description for a software engineer working in Apple Music. Originally spotted by Twitter users and now confirmed by AppleInsider, the listing makes two references to the new OS.

The tweeted screenshot shows only that it is a job for “stellar software engineers.” However, AppleInsider can now confirm that the “homeOS” references are in at least one posting for a Senior iOS Engineer – Apple Music, based in Cupertino. The ad was posted by Apple on May 25, 2021.
