Apple has started seeding the latest build of macOS Big Sur (v11.3) starting today, alongside updates for iOS (check out all the key changes here) and watchOS among others. Talking about the changes and features coming to Apple’s Mac hardware via the latest update, they cover everything from AirTag support and Siri upgrades to UI updates and the addition of new emojis. The macOS Big Sur 11.3 update is 5.71GB in size, just in case you were wondering. 

To start, macOS Big Sur 11.3 adds support for the new AirTag object tracker in the Find My app, complete with the introduction of the new Lost Mode to help find items you’ve misplaced. Moreover, Apple is also making some meaningful changes to how iPhone and iPad apps run on the new Macs powered by the M1 silicon. For example, users can now adjust the size of an iPhone or iPad app’s window, view the highest resolution version of supported apps in full-screen, and keyboard, mouse, and trackpad support for mobile games. Talking about gaming, the update also enables support for the new PS5 Dual Sense and Xbox Series X/S wireless controllers.

Just like iOS 14.5, Siri gets new voice options with macOS Big Sur 11.3, while Macs with the M1 chip also get Hibernation support. Listed below is the remaining list of changes that have arrived on Macs with the new update:
