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.

It's not really useless. It's the entire kernel, GRUB can boot it, several init systems work on it, and most of the GNU userland (at least certain versions) run on it, including X11.
