    The macOS Big Sur has been refined in terms of its visual languages with cues from other operating systems under Apple’s ecosystem as aforementioned. The OS looks spacious thanks to the various improved visual cues including curved window corners, colour palette, and more. With that being said, the dynamic widgets have trickled down to Big Sur. The new version has an improved messaging interface with the inclusion of pinned conversations, grouping, and editing. The Memoji feature has gone live as well.

    Further, the Safari that was released in 2003 has also received a much-needed upgrade. Safari is well-known for its prowess over other browsers on Mac and it is an average 50% faster than Google Chrome that could be called a RAM eating monster, to be honest. Apple has reworked how Safari works by reiterating the tabs options, quick view of pages by hovering, and other improvements.

There’s an easy way to track cycling and electric vehicle routes on the map and sync it with your iPhone when you are in a hurry. Apple has also worked on upgrading the privacy aspect of Big Sur offering transparent and overall control over data.
