Apple finally releases first macOS ‘Big Sur’ public beta
Apple last week released the first public beta of its upcoming upgrade, macOS 11, aka “Big Sur.”
Previously, Apple had said it would deliver the public beta – a preview available to anyone, not just registered developers – in July. The Cupertino, Calif. company missed that month, perhaps signaling that it will issue the final code later in the year than has been its habit.
To obtain the preview, Mac users must enroll with Apple’s beta program – Apple ID required – then install the upgrade (using About this Mac > Software Update from the Apple menu).
