macOS 11 Big Sur marks probably the biggest change to macOS for a number of years. With Mac OS X finally coming to the end of its life, 11 brings a big design overhaul, which Apple says is the biggest design upgrade since it introduced OS X. There are new icons, buttons, a new menu bar, an updated Notification Center, and refreshed looks across the board. There are also changes to some of macOS 11's mainstay apps like Safari, as well as nifty features like better device switching for AirPods.

Apple Silicon

Arguably the biggest announcement Apple made this week was Apple silicon. Apple will end its partnership with Intel over the next two years, instead, transitioning to Macs that run on Apple's own-designed processors, right now that's the A-series. That could mean big upgrades to performance and power, as well as new possibilities about using iOS and iPadOS apps on the Mac.

Betas

Right now, all of Apple's new software is available as developer betas, details of which can be found below.

There was plenty more that Apple announced (or didn't) that we don't have time for here, so be sure to check out all of our WWDC 2020 coverage here.
