Mac OS X

Apple has always shared the kernel of macOS after each major release. This kernel also runs on iOS devices as both macOS and iOS are built on the same foundation. This year, Apple also shared the most recent version of the kernel on GitHub. And you can also find ARM versions of the kernel for the first time.

The code was pushed to Apple's open source site, as well as to their official GitHub mirror.

Because keeping something closed source these days will tend to turn into irrelevance over time.
Developers attend meetings, go to hackathons, exchange information over dedicated sites ..
Having something that only you own will not trigger any momentum and this isn't good for business.
