Apple today seeded the release candidate of macOS Big Sur 11.1 to developers and public beta testers. The new release candidate comes one week after the release of the second beta.
The new developer build can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center and once the correct profile is installed, succeeding betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences.
There’s no word yet on what’s new or fixed in macOS Big Sur 11.1, but it likely includes the usual bug, fixes, performance improvements, security updates, and such that weren’t addressed in the release version of macOS Big Sur.
Nothing major was found in the two betas, but we’ll let you know if anything new is found in the second beta.
As usual, MacTrast and Apple both warn users to not install any betas on their daily driver Mac, instead only install betas on a Mac set aside for testing purposes.
