Apple releases macOS Big Sur beta 2 to developers

macOS 11 beta 2 release rect 3

Alongside the release of iOS and iPadOS 14 beta 2, Apple today seeded macOS Big Sur beta 2 to registered developers.

macOS Big Sur is the biggest visual redesign to macOS since its launch. macOS Big Sur, also now known as macOS 11 includes brand new app icon designs, closely resembling that of iOS and iPadOS. It also includes a brand new control center, also similar to the one found on iOS/iPadOS allowing for quick access to commonly used settings.

All system stock apps have been redesigned, the redesign includes a more dynamic and colorfully look featuring more rounded corners and less squared-off edges. macOS Big Sur also includes the landmark ability to port iOS apps onto the Mac, a build off Catalysts, and a stepping stone for Apple’s ARM chip releases.
