Microsoft announced Windows 11 a while back. The new Windows operating system brings a breath of fresh air, with the new blur design language and a lot of exciting features. However, not all the features of Windows 11 are new or ‘unique.’ Microsoft has clearly taken cues from Apple’s macOS for Windows 11. Let’s take a look at the features Microsoft copied from macOS for Windows 11.
One of the most promising features of macOS Big Sur is running iPhone and iPad apps on M1 Mac. As expected, the experience of running iPhone apps on Mac was a mixed bag. Developers design the apps for smaller displays. However, Apple is taking the feature a step further with macOS Monterey. iPhone and iPad apps on the latest macOS will offer a better experience with full-screen mode and supports Apple Pay.
macOS push notifications give us an update about new messages across multiple apps and services. Now an iOS engineer has added a notifications UI that lets you play “Flappy Bird” within a notification!
Finding vulnerabilities in the operating systems isn’t new. A lot of vulnerabilities in macOS have been reported earlier. But, a decade-old vulnerability has been found that could lead to root access being given to local users on Unix-based systems, including macOS Big Sur.
Ever since its inception, macOS has changed a lot. Apple recently released macOS Big Sur for the public. Have you ever wondered how macOS would look with a futuristic AR interface? Well, a 24-year old designer by the name of Dominik Hofacker has reimagined macOS with an AR twist.
Earlier this month, Apple unveiled M1 Chip Macs touting significant performance improvement. Last week Google released a Chrome browser for Macs powered by M1 Chip. New MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini users have to download a different Chrome version. The best part is that this version of Chrome runs faster than the one on Rosetta 2.
macOS has evolved a lot in the recent past. Mac OS X debuted in 2001, and since then, the operating system has transformed drastically. Apple recently announced macOS Big Sur, and the same will be available for the public later this year. Now a new timelapse video takes us through all the Mac software updates starting from Mac OS X to macOS Catalina.
Apple unveiled the biggest update to macOS in years, introducing macOS Big Sur during the first online-only WWDC keynote last month. The macOS Big Sur Beta 1 update was released just after the WWDC keynote. Now, a developer has posted detailed side-by-side comparison images of macOS Catalina vs. macOS Big Sur to showcase design changes between the two versions.
A macOS developer has unearthed a vulnerability that affects macOS Mojave, Catalina, and even the macOS Big Sur. The vulnerability gains access to protected files on your Mac by bypassing the security system. The Privacy Protections System known as TCC (Transparency, Consent, and Control) debuted in macOS Mojave. It was introduced with the purpose of protecting certain files on your Mac from access by unauthorized apps.
