Apple surprisingly released the first developer beta of macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 yesterday, which appeared before macOS Big Sur was even officially available to the public. Today, the company released macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 as a public beta.
macOS Big Sur 11.0.1 doesn’t bring any new features over the previous beta of macOS Big Sur, but Apple has included several new wallpapers – all of which you can download here.
Apple is presumably hosting the first public release of macOS Big Sur for its rumored event in November, in which the company is expected to showcase the first Apple Silicon Mac.
Users of the public beta can update to the latest beta by heading to the System Preferences app and then looking for the software update option. If you want to install macOS Big Sur beta on your Mac for the first time, you need to register for the Apple Beta software program through beta.apple.com.
