The “secret dessert” of Android 13 would be Tiramisu. Android officially abandoned desserts with Android 10: The operating system was named after its version number. Internally, however, Google still uses desserts for each Android version. Android 10 was Quince Tart, Android 11 Red Velvet cake, Android 12 Snow Cone and now we know the possible internal dessert of Android 13.
Android 13, which corresponds to the letter T, would have tiramisu as a secret dessert. This dessert, like all those that have come since Android 10, would be used only internally during the development of the operating system. It is there, in the code, where the reference has been found.
Android 13 Tiramisu
We still do not have Android 12 and we are already learning a little more about the next version: Android 13. Or, to be exact, Android T, because the letters have not always corresponded to the numbering, although it seems that this is the path that Google has decided to take since the last reset in Android 10.
Google did away with the sweet last names in Android two years ago, although internally there are still references to desserts during development. Some of these references have ended up in external nods, such as the Red Velvet cake recipe in the -virtual- statue of Android 11. If Android 12 would be Snow Cone, Android 13 would be Tiramisu, as it appears from a commit in the AOSP code.
The commit simply calls for changing the platform version name from T to Tiramisu, which makes it pretty clear that this would be the internal name by which developers will refer to the next version of Android. With Android 12 now almost on the rails with Android 12 Beta 3.1 fresh out of the oven, it’s only natural that work on Android 13 should begin now.
We users probably won’t get to see the relationship of this delicious coffee-soaked sponge cake confection mixed with soft cheese and whipped cream, but we’ll always have the aftertaste of tiramisu, somewhere in the Android 13 code. This news comes on the same day that we knew the possible Easter egg of Android 12.
