What’s new in macOS Big Sur?

Apple releases major macOS upgrades annually, bringing hundreds of new features to your Mac. Apple’s tight integration between hardware, OS & apps means it’s vital to keep up-to-date. Upgrades are free, and most users upgrade quickly. You’ll need to have the latest macOS to use many new business & creative apps, as well as full compatibility with iPhone & iPad.

Modern versions of macOS take your privacy seriously, so from now on you’ll be asked if you want to show app notifications, download from a site, or allow apps to use functions. If something isn’t working, go to System Preferences – Security & Privacy. Click General and look for a button to Allow.

Also check the Privacy tab where you’ll see which apps have access to contacts, camera, location & more. Click Accessibility and check boxes for apps you need. See special instructions to authorize Google DriveDropboxParallelsTeamViewer & Backblaze.
