MacOS Big Sur 11.1 is available, with few new features

Apple rolled out several updates overnight. One of them is for our Macs: macOS Big Sur 11.1 . Available now, however, it brings relatively few new features.

macOs Big Sur will take a long time to come. The very latest version of the system has indeed been available for a few weeks now, even though we thought we could take advantage of it in September.

MacOS Big Sur will offer a new interface modeled on iOS

And now, to end the year in style, Apple is therefore offering a first update.

macOS Big Sur is updating

Unsurprisingly, the latter is intended exclusively for Macs compatible with Big Sur. List includes all iMac Pro, 2013 or newer Mac Pro, 2014 or newer iMac, 2014 or newer Mac Mini, 2013 or newer MacBook Pro, 2013 or newer MacBook Air recent and all MacBooks with a Retina display.

Needless to say, if your machine is not on this list, then Big Sur's doors will remain closed to you.

Side functions, on the other hand, macOS Big Sur 11.1 does not bring much novelty and it sticks mainly to the correction of bugs:

  • The LG Ultrafine 5K display will now display 5K when connected to a Mac M1;
  • The touchpad bug on some MacBook Pros has been fixed;
  • The Bluetooth icon will now appear in Control Center;
  • Mac unlock bug with Apple Watch has been fixed;
  • QuickTime Player will no longer stop randomly.

As you can see, we can't say that the list is crazy, but at least this update will have the merit of getting rid of some annoying bugs, like the unlock function with the Apple Watch which indeed had a tendency to not always function properly.

To install the update, nothing complicated, just go to the menu of MacOS and click on “update”. Note, however, that it will be preferable to launch it… when you do not need your Mac. The process can actually be quite long.
