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.
