macOS Big Sur is a massive departure from macOS Catalina. Apple has completely redesigned the significant parts of the OS and at the same time added functions such as widget support, Control Centre, new iconography, and more. However, whenever a major update to an operating system drops, there are bound to be issues and bugs. And unfortunately, macOS Big Sur is no exception here. The update is riddled with bugs and issues such as installation stuck on a loop, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi issues, below-average battery life, and more.

One of the issues with M1-based Macs is that they do not support Boot Camp meaning there’s no way to run Windows on these machines. As per Apple’s Craig Federighi, it is actually up to Microsoft to bring Windows to M1 Macs and not Apple. Many initially believed that due to the underlying shift in architecture with the M1 chip, it was up to Apple to add Boot Camp support for Windows but that does not seem to be the case.
Soon after Apple released macOS Big Sur to the public last week, a number of 2013 and 2014 MacBook Pro owners reported about their machine being bricked during the installation process of the OS. Apple has now published a new support document for this issue.
As announced by Apple earlier this week, macOS Big Sur is now available for download for all compatible Macs.
With macOS Big Sur, Apple re-engineered the entire macOS UI to be more in line with that of the iPhone and iPad. The strikingly unMac-like Dock icons may’ve thrown you off guard at first, but the spacious-looking native apps with full-height sidebars and the translucent menu bar are undoubtedly examples of great design. That aside, macOS Big Sur comes with a host of exciting new features — you can check out a list of the best here. There’s also a fair share of tips and tricks that you can readily make use of on your MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, or iMac. Now that macOS Big Sur is finally out, let’s go through them below.

At its ‘One more thing’ event today, Apple has finally announced the public release date of macOS Big Sur alongside its new Apple Silicon Macs.
Apple’s stock wallpaper collection for macOS is amazing. Needless to say, Apple spends a lot of time and effort to create new wallpapers. The latest macOS Big Sur features a default wallpaper that pictures California’s mountainous cliffs. Typically you would have to use a drone and visit California’s Central Coast to take the picture. Matt Birchler has saved himself the trouble and recreated the macOS wallpaper in Microsoft’s Flight Simulator 2020.
With every new release of macOS, Apple tends to release a new default system wallpaper as well. The release of macOS Big Sur is no different, with the new wallpaper offering a stunning look at Big Sur itself. The “crack marketing team” at Apple behind such wallpapers obviously goes to great lengths to capture them. So, exactly how hard can it be to recreate the macOS Big Sure wallpaper? YouTuber Andrew Levitt went on an adventurous journey with two of his friends to do exactly that.
