Apple’s macOS Big Sur is presently accessible to download

Apple’s best in class desktop OS, macOS Big Sur, is at last accessible for public consumption — just in time for the new Macs.

Big Sur has been in beta since WWDC, and it brings a huge number of aesthetic and under-the-hood changes to modernize Apple’s OS. Furthermore, obviously, Apple is dropping the old OS X moniker it’s utilized for the majority of two decades; macOS better matches the naming of the rest of the organization’s software lineup.

Among the remarkable changes, the UI looks much more iOS-like in its icons and the use of transparencies. There’s a Control Center that mimics the one on cell phones; the equivalent goes for the new Notification Center. Hell, people can even use iOS style widgets.

In any case, maybe the main change is support for Apple’s new ARM-based processors, including the ground-breaking M1 chip in the new MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini. In all actuality, individuals purchasing these PCs won’t have to update.
