Apple at World Wide Developer’s Conference (WWDC) 2020, on Monday unveiled the new version of MacOS, called as the MacOS Big Sur. This new update will contain many major changes to the Safari Web-Browser, Messages, and also the Maps App. This new MacOS update also marks the biggest design change, ever since OS X was first released in March 2001, that is almost 20 years ago!
With the new update, the MacOS is a whole lot ‘curved’, bringing rounded corners to all the App Icons. Though changed in designs, the symbol connection is still the same, so that users would not get confused. Apple has also bought many new notification sounds, and the Dock now has a more ‘floating’ feel. MacOS Big Sur also introduces a whole new Control Centre, just like in iOS.
MacOS Big Sur is currently available as the Developer’s Beta, and you can download it, only if you are a member od Apple’s Developers program. The Public Beta would be available in July. And the final release would be in around September. iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 developers betas are available too.
But weather you want to try the Beta version or the Stable version, your device needs to be compatible with the new OS. According to Apple, here is the list of Macs that would be able to run the all new MacOS Big Sur:
