macOS Big Sur

Apple has today released the first public beta of macOS Big Sur, shortly after seeding the fourth developer beta. Aside from a major design overhaul, macOS Big Sur introduces an updated Messages app, a new control center, fresh app icons, a reimagined design for the sidebar, and an overhauled notification center, complete with redesigned widgets and interactive notifications.

macOS Big Sur also brings a redesigned photo picker to make sharing media easier, and adds a new search feature to the Messages app too. Users can now also create a custom guide for certain spots and see an indoor map for locations such as shopping centers and airports. You can check out all the full changelog here.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
