According to the latest news, Apple will come out with the stable version of macOS Big Sur tomorrow, on 12th November. Apple made the announcement Tuesday night at its ‘One More Thing’ virtual event. In the event, the company launched its latest line of MacBooks and an upgraded Mac Mini which are going to be powered by its in-house M1 processor.
The company will soon roll out updates to iMacs and MacBooks dating back to 2013. Note that the beta version of the software was rolled out back in August. As per some reports, Apple is porting over many iOS features to Big Sur as part of its plans to bring feature parity between the company’s desktop and mobile operating systems. Eventually, some of the new features will include improved Message threading and in-line replies.
The latest update will also bring a redesigned Apple Maps and a new Control Center with quick access to brightness, volume, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. The upcoming version of macOS is also set to bring a whole host of under-the-hood changes to make the OS safer than ever before alongside the client-facing features that will be discernible for the end-user.
On the other hand, the Big Sur is expected to bring new privacy and security features too. It will reportedly come with an in-built intelligence tracking prevention feature which will stop web trackers from following your browsing activities. As far as security is concerned, there will also be a password monitoring feature to prevent folks from using previously breached passwords.
Rosetta 2 is another notable feature. It is a dynamic binary translator that will allow users to run x86 apps on M1 powered devices. Mail, Safari, Messages, and other Apple apps are also expected to get updates with the upcoming OS.
