Apple has just released the Release Candidate version of macOS Big Sur 11.4. After the arrival of the beta versions of the other operating systems, it is the turn of the Mac. The operating system that gives life to our computers continues the development of what will be an update that should arrive this fall.
As we have seen in previous betas in this version we expect Apple to focus on polishing details and finish adjusting the small new features that we saw appear in the previous version. Therefore in this update, we should not see major changes or new features.
Recall that macOS 11 Big Sur is the first ARM operating system to run on Macs with M1, so even if Apple tests it thoroughly before releases, there is still room for improvements, even if they are invisible to the user.
As always it is important to remember that, although we can install this update on our Macs, it is still a Beta version. Although it is a fourth version of the final version already presented to the public, it still contains some bugs so it should not be installed on computers in daily use.
If we are already in the beta cycle, we will find the update in System Preferences as an OTA update. During the first hours, Apple’s servers may receive more demand than usual, so the waiting time may be longer.
