Chapter in this post:
The Apple Mac will get a completely overhauled operating system in autumn 2020 with macOS 11.0 Big Sur. Among other things, this is already designed for the upcoming Apple computers with their own "Apple Silicon" SoC, with which the manufacturer of Intel processors wants to say goodbye. But which Mac models are compatible with macOS Big Sur? Which Mac, iMac, Mac mini and which MacBook get the macOS 11.0 upgrade? Here you will find the official list of compatible computers and notebooks from Cupertino, an overview of the most important innovations and other sources - e.g. B. my WWDC20 Keynote Summary ;)
The iPhone had previously been rumored that all models running iOS 13 would also get along with iOS 14 become. There were no such rumors about Apple computers. But that doesn't matter, because after yesterday's presentation of the new operating system, the manufacturer from Cupertino has now published a list that provides information on Macs, MacBooks and iMacs that are compatible with Big Sur. Here is the list of Mac models compatible with macOS 11.0:
As part of the WWDC20 keynote on June 22, 2020, the summary of which I linked you to at the beginning, the new look and the new functions were impressively demonstrated. In text form, Apple offers at this point an overview of the new functions and possibilities of macOS 11.0 Big Sur. Here are the most important points in German:
Which Apple Mac models get macOS 11.0 Big Sur? This question is now answered with the above list. For everyone who wants more extensive compatibility (as with macOS 10.15 Catalina) were hoping the device selection is a bit disappointing. While the Mac mini, iMac, MacBook Pro and MacBook Air from 2012 were compatible, Apple computers supported by macOS 11 now start in 2013, 2014 or 2015. So if you use an Apple MacBook Pro 2012 that is currently still running well (see picture), you will have to be content with Catalina in the future or buy a new or more up-to-date laptop for Big Sur.
Now you know which Apple Mac is compatible with macOS 11.0 Big Sur, which MacBook gets the macOS 11 upgrade and which iMacs can be used with it. You can find out what the whole thing will look like in the end thanks to the WWDC20 Keynote, this year's June Special Event from Apple. You can do this later as a video on YouTube as well as using the following embedded player;)
