Apple released macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 to developers earlier today, giving them chance to test it ahead of launch. Ignoring the fact that the first macOS Big Sur release still isn't public for a moment, this update brings with it a nice surprise – new wallpapers.
As shared by 9to5Mac, these wallpapers are drawn in a similar way to those which debuted in iOS 14.2's own recent beta release.
There aren't just one or two, either. Ther are 40 in total.
The folk at 9to5Mac have even made them all available for download. And download them you should because they're absolutely stunning. I can't decide which is my favorite yet, bit it's definitely one of the drawn ones rather than the photos.
There's no telling when Apple will release macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 but we're still waiting for macOS Big Sur 11. Will that ever be released or will Apple skip it? At this point, it's impossible to tell!
Which is your favorite new macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 wallpaper?

Having grown up using PCs and spending far too much money on graphics card and flashy RAM, Oliver switched to the Mac with a G5 iMac and hasn't looked back. Since then he's seen the growth of the smartphone world, backed by iPhone, and new product categories come and go. Current expertise includes iOS, macOS, streaming services, and pretty much anything that has a battery or plugs into a wall. Oliver also covers mobile gaming for iMore, with Apple Arcade a particular focus. He's been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and still struggles to comprehend the fact he can play console quality titles on his pocket computer.
So far I am liking the New Mountain Wallpapers the best. Not sure about dynamic "Paint by Number" drawing Wallpapers but will probably try them for something different
