Apple’s latest operating system MacOS Big Sur is now available as a free software update for all users as long as your Mac is compatible. The newly designed operating system includes important updates to the Safari web browser, and updated Maps and Messages apps (we have some of the best new MacOS Big Sur features and how to use them here).

MacOS Big Sur was first unveiled at Apple’s annual Global Developer Conference in June. At a virtual event on November 10, Apple unveiled new Mac computers with Apple’s M1 chips with the latest version of Big Sur, which is optimized to run on these machines. Apps will run faster and smoother, Apple executives said at the event, and you’ll also see better device security.

How to Download and Install MacOS Big Sur

Follow these steps if you want to download MacOS Big Sur:

1. Back up your Mac, just for safety. You don’t want to risk losing everything when you upgrade.

2. Make sure you are running OS X 10.9 or higher and you have 4 GB of memory and 35.5 GB of available storage.

3. On your Mac, go to apple.com/macos/big-sur. Or go to System Preferences> Software Updateand search macOS Big Sur. Either way, click Top up now. The download will start immediately, but may take a while – for my MacBook Air it is estimated to be about an hour.

After downloading and installing the update and restarting your computer, you are running macOS Big Sur.

A word of caution: some users reported slow or failed downloads last week. But as of Tuesday, the update was marked “available” on Apple’s system status page.

You can also download iOS 14 and iPadOS 14 noweven if you haven’t already.
