Apple has seeded the 10th developer beta of macOS Big Sur. It is available via the Apple Developer Center or via an over-the-air update.
Safari 14 will be included but it’s not limited to Big Sur. Mac users running macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina can also get the update.
Apple released iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 for public beta testers in July, and on Thursday launched the macOS Big Sur public beta.
This week, Particle Debris opens with an in-depth look at ARM technology as well as a former Apple exec’s view of how the Apple Silicon move will change the entire computer industry.
Designer Michael Flarup writes about how macOS Big Sur will bring back “fun in visual design.”
With this approach Apple is legalising a visual design expressiveness that we haven’t seen from them in almost a decade. It’s like a ban has been lifted on fun. This will severely loosen the grip of minimalistic visual design and raise the bar for pixel pushers everywhere. Your glyph on a colored background is about to get some serious visual competition.
I don’t miss pre-iOS 7 skeuomorphism, but I don’t think I’ll mind some of that era’s icons coming back (just without the gloss). I also wonder if we’ll see them on iOS, or just macOS.
