macOS Big Sur: Slow download and apps won’t launch

There are obviously a lot of you downloading macOS Big Sur right now. Apple offered the update in the early evening and the download speed is very slow. For some, the delay is counted in days!

The update arrived shortly before 7:00 p.m. and things are still going strong as this article goes. Whether you have an ADSL, VDSL or fiber connection, the result is the same. Some people get a better start by canceling the download of macOS Big Sur and then relaunching it. But it’s very random. In fact, some do not even manage to initiate the download!

The update to macOS Big Sur weighs 12 GB. We understand why the servers cannot accommodate everyone at once. If you haven’t initiated the download, wait a few hours or days to avoid the traffic jam.

Apple recognizes a problem with the switch to macOS Big Sur

On its system status page, Apple indicates that there is indeed an issue for macOS updates. We can read :

Some users are affected. Users might not be able to download macOS software updates on Mac computers. We are currently investigating this issue.

MacOS Update failure

Apple also mentions difficulties in using iMessage. It is possible that this is related to the large influx on Apple’s servers.

Unable to launch some applications

Congested servers also have an impact on some applications. It is impossible to open them due to Gatekeeper and notarization. It is a certification provided by Apple to ensure a certain level of security for users. It is based on an Apple server, which is precisely down.

To open your applications, disconnect from the Internet. Otherwise, temporarily block the connection to if you have a firewall like Little Snitch.

Apple’s sites are also down

It turns out that massive downloading is impacting the Apple Online Store. Indeed, it is not possible to order a product. A “Gateway Timeout” error appears after a few moments. On the other hand, it is always possible to browse the pages of each product with the information about them.

Another part of the downed Apple site is the developer space. For the moment, it is completely out of service. Unable to grab a beta, get information or whatever.
