Last June, Apple first announced version 11 of its operating system for the mac, macOS Big Sur, along with updates to its other operating systems.
While all of its systems were made available last month, the company has contained the availability of macOS Big Sur, primarily so that the update can be released with its new Apple Silicon Macs, the Apple M1. The free update is finally coming today, Thursday, November 12, 2020.
While this literally doesn’t affect any user who updates their device from a previous version of macOS, the biggest feature is that it now supports Apple Silicon. In fact, it’s an entirely new architecture, so it has the new Rosetta 2 emulation layer, iPhone and iPad app support and more. It’s even called macOS 11, which makes it the first major release since Mac OS X 10.0 was released in 2001.

The action center receives widgets and with it you will find that the new system has the same style of widgets that started to emerge on iOS 14. There are also new features in messages, cards, photos, etc. already know of your iPhone.
MacOS 11 Big Sur is starting to be available for free today, and you can download it from the Mac App Store.
