It’s that special time of year again. Apple is releasing new products and software, but just like 2020, everything is a little different than expected.
Usually, we would be seeing releases throughout the year, but with the coronavirus causing the ultimate delay in society, everything has been pushed back.
In June 2020 Apple announced the development of Apple Silicon and macOS Big Sur, the new operating system, replacing macOS Catalina. This is the biggest change to come to Mac devices in a decade and has many people excited to see the new advancements.
If you’re looking forward to getting the upgrade to Big Sur once it’s released, read on to learn what that means for you and what Mac devices will be compatible.
Apple Silicon is a processing chip inside of Mac devices. Apple has chosen to replace the initial Intel chips with their own Apple Silicon chips for a variety of reasons.
One of the biggest benefits of this switch is the universal architecture it brings across all Apple products. This allows app developers to create apps for iPhone, iPads, and Macs without having to alter them at all. Apps that weren’t available on the Mac will now be easily accessible with this feature.
