On November 10, Apple held its third event this fall. There is no doubt that the protagonist of this event is the self-developed computer chip that Apple announced at the WWDC Developer Conference. After more than 4 months, the Mac equipped with this Apple self-developed chip finally came to us.
Apple announced at the event that the macOS Big Sur system will be released on Thursday, November 12th, US time. In order to give full play to the performance of the M1 chip, Apple specifically optimized the macOS Big Sur system, including performance improvements and increased battery life.
Existing various Mac apps, even if it has not been updated to Universal, can still run seamlessly through Apple’s Rosetta 2 technology. At the same time, various apps on the iPhone and iPad can now run directly on Mac.
In addition, macOS Big Sur has also been optimized to unlock the strength of the M1 chip, including developer technologies such as Metal for graphics processing tasks and Core ML for machine learning.
