The era of Mac OS X is over. Something like that.
For the first time in Almost two decades, Apple has decided to increase the version number of Mac’s operating system. The change is intended to focus on both Apple Silicon transition is pendingApple Big Sur will be the first MacOS version to run on Apple’s own chips, if not the first Is required Those chips – and the iPad-flavored redesign – significantly change the look, feel and sound of the operating system for the first time in a long time. Post-iOS-7 Yosemite update too It took pains to keep most objects in one place It changed their appearance.
But rather than jump from Mac OS 9 For Mac OS X, Apple has wiped out almost every aspect of its previous operating system and built a new one from the foundation, MacOS 11 is still basically MacOS 10. Initial betas were also labeled MacOS 10.16, and Big Sur still detects that version 10.16 is for some older software to maintain compatibility. Almost everything is still there Work In the same way – or, at the very least, Big Sur does not break much older software than older Makos 10 updates. It might even be a little Less More disruptive than Catalina. It must have been a very delicate transition.
We will not make major changes to how we approach this review. We will cover the new look and new features of the operating system — things that any Big Sur Mac can do, regardless of whether it runs on Intel or Apple Silicon Mac. As far as we can do without the final hardware on hand, we will cover the new MacOS features that are native to Apple Silicon Macs and let you know how the transition is going towards the software.
