Chapter in this post:
With the introduction of macOS 11.0 Big Sur, an elaborately recorded wallpaper was of course brought out again, i.e. a desktop background that is significant for the Mac operating system. As in the previous versions of macOS, this is a nature photograph - this time from the eponymous coast, which is located south of San Jose in California, USA. And as with the last versions of the Apple operating system for Mac computers, Andrew Levitt and his team have made it their task to recreate the desktop background - this time not by drone, but by helicopter.
You can find my post from February with this link. In it I have linked and embedded the two previous videos by Andrew Levitt and his team. You will also find some background information and screenshots there. In the first of the two videos, the desktop backgrounds from macOS 10.10 Yosemite to 10.14 Mojave are recreated. It was released on September 9, 2019, one day before Release of macOS 10.15 Catalina. The day was certainly chosen deliberately, but the new operating system for Mac, iMac, MacBook and Co. also resulted in a new photo to recreate. The Catalina video then came out on November 13, 2019.
This time, the YouTubers didn't wait until September to get the most recognizable feature of the one presented in June macOS 11.0 BigSur to photograph yourself. Given the coronavirus pandemic and its severity in the US, it might have been wiser. But they had right after that WWDC20 keynote on the way and pursued the goal of recreating the picture within a week. Andrew Levitt and his team were reasonably successful and were able to take good pictures of the corresponding stretch of coast of Big Sur in the US state of California from a helicopter. The question at the beginning of the video: Did Craig Federighi indirectly challenge you during the macOS presentation? The video can be found on YouTube as well as embedded in the following:
