MAC computers are about to have a major update – and it will be the biggest change in years.
We have all the information you need about macOS 11 Big Sur, including release date news and rumors, features, compatibility, and more.
Apple macOS Big Sur – what is macOS 11?
Apple regularly releases major updates to macOS – the software for Mac computers.
However, the 2020 update is one of the biggest in years as it makes so many changes.
It also marks the long-awaited leap from macOS 10 / macOS X to macOS 11, which was introduced back in 2001.
The new version is called macOS Big Sur and has seriously impressed geeks.
Apple macOS Big Sur release date – when will macOS 11 be available?
Apple unveiled macOS 11 Big Sur at its annual WWDC event earlier this year.
Unfortunately we don’t have a confirmed release date for the new update yet.
We’re very deep in the MacOS 11 beta, so it’s likely a release is only days or weeks away.
It was widely rumored that we’ll be learning more about Mac – including new MacBook models – at a special event in November.
So the release of a new version of macOS would almost certainly coincide with this.
Specialized Apple blogs are discussing November 4th as a potential release date, although this has not been confirmed.
It’s also worth noting that Big Sur is available as a completely free upgrade – just like iOS.
Apple MacOS Big Sur Compatibility – Which Macs Support MacOS 11?
Apple has already published the list of devices that will be upgraded from macOS Big Sur.
You will need:
- MacBook models from early 2015 or later
- MacBook Air models from 2013 or later
- MacBook Pro models from 2013 or later
- Mac Mini models from 2014 or later
- iMac models from 2014 or later
- iMac Pro (all models)
- Mac Pro models from 2013 or later
If you have an older model of Mac, you just can’t upgrade to Big Sur. We are sorry!
Apple MacOS Big Sur Features – What’s New in MacOS 11?
The most important change is a major design redesign that Apple calls the biggest since macOS 10.
Said Apple, “macOS Big Sur has a spacious new design that simplifies navigation and gives users more controls.
“From the curvature of the window corners to the palette of colors and materials, everything has been refined, and new functions offer even more information and performance.
“The icons in the Dock have been carefully designed to be more consistent with icons across the Apple ecosystem while preserving their Mac personality.
“Buttons and controls appear when needed and step back when they don’t
“The entire experience feels more focused, fresher and more familiar, reducing visual complexity and bringing the user content to the fore.”
There’s a brand new Control Center, Notification Center and a new design for the most important Apple apps.
Safari got a big upgrade with faster performance and improved battery life for MacBooks.
Apple estimates that Safari now loads frequently visited websites 50% faster than Google’s Chrome browser.
Messages have been redesigned with pinned conversations, additional effects, and new group messaging features.
The redesigned Apple Maps of the iPhone are also coming to the Mac. They offer new features like instructions, a 360-degree view, and some indoor maps for places like airports and shopping malls.
According to Apple, there are also some major changes to privacy, including disclosing the types of data apps collect before you download them.
It is also marked whether this data is passed on to third parties for tracking.
