macOS Big Sur is finally here, the latest version of Mac OS We invite you to review its new features with some advice before starting to install them

macOS 11 Big Sur is a major update to the Mac that includes a completely redesigned interface and modified apps

The first thing you'll notice when you start using Big Sur is its new look Everything looks whiter and brighter (unless of course you prefer dark mode like me, in which case things look darker) the edges of the windows are curved The menu bars in the application windows blend well with the controls for a clean look, and above all there is no more gray. Previously, there was a lot of gray

Regarding design changes, the Dock is well organized and the icons that appear there are more consistent.

One of the biggest changes to the macOS Big Sur interface is access to the Control Center, accessed by clicking on the new switch in the menu bar next to the watch This interface should remind you for iOS and iPadOS

The good news is that Apple's action center has been revamped a bit and is now more useful.. Notifications will be grouped by application rather than chronological order, so you won't have to browse through notification stacks looking for the notifications you're looking for, then there are tools like iOS 14. Tools aren't new to Mac – in Catalina and long before they were found in the Today section of the Notification Center, and had long been part of the dashboard – but in Big Sur Tools, they appear next to your notifications

Messages and Cards apps have also been revised, the more they are numerous, the better, the closer they are to their operation on iOS and iPadOS If you use Messages a lot, you will enjoy the same features as the mobile application.

Apple is expanding the information you can get about your battery through the new Battery section in System Preferences which reminds us of the Battery section in Settings on iOS. Here you will find data for the latest 24 hours as well as 10 last days. You can also set the time at which you want your screen to turn off. Sleep mode, set the screen to automatically darken when you turn on the battery and turn Power Nap on or off This feature allows you to perform some useful activities on your Mac while it is in sleep mode.

The new macOS also brings a major update to Safari, which Apple claims its browser loads websites 50% faster than Chrome. The new Safari also has a customizable start page (you can set the background image and decide what is displayed) and a built-in automatic translation function with seven supported languages

If you are using Windows 10 or GNU / Linux distro, you can still put one of the Big Sur wallpapers on your computer, On the other hand, you won't enjoy new features in macOS Big Sur

If Mojave or Catalina is installed on your Mac, it will update itself through the software update You may even see a notification that an update is available in the action center

Open System Preferences (you can click Apple logo in the list to find it), then go to Software Update

If you are using High Sierra or earlier, you will need to access the Mac App Store, search for macOS and click Get

The file size is approximately 12 Go, so arm yourself with a little patience and a good connection. Obviously, you need to turn on your Mac. Apple suggests that you should have 20 GB of free space before installing a new version of macOS – to Although in practice, you don't need to have so much space

Finally, before performing a major update on your Mac, You need to make a backup copy of your Mac Fortunately, Apple makes it easy to back up your Mac with Time Machine, so there is no excuse not to create a Time Machine backup before installing a new version. From macOS
