Apple has now officially released the latest version of macOS. The macOS Big Sur (also known as macOS 11.0), is available for download if you have a compatible Mac PC.


The OS is one of Apple’s biggest software updates for its laptop and desktop in years. macOS Big Sur features a top-to-bottom redesign of the interface, icons, and menu bar; also, a new control center UI borrowed from iOS, widgets. Apple is even moving on from the OS X/OS 10 branding that it’s been using for Macs for almost 20 years, highlighting how big a change this is.


Additionally, Big Sur is the operating system that will power Apple’s newly announced M1-powered MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini. The PCs are set for release on 17th November 2020.
