I don’t really have a ton of comments on the new stuff this week:
- The upgrade file for Big Sur is huge, then it asks for even more free space to install.
- Happy it’s still free, but how exactly does that continue to work?
- Upgraded my work MacBook Air on the first day, then my home iMac the next day. No big issues so far on either one – there was one alert about the Cisco AnyConnect client, but version 4.9.00086 seems to work fine.
- Out of the gate, Big Sur seems very polished for a dot-0 release.
- Speaking of 11: while I like the Spinal Tap reference, the end of the “X” is a little sad too.
- Will the new Safari improvements get me to switch back from Chrome? Time will tell on that one…
- Hoping the AirPod tradeoff process between devices works as promised, since I switch a lot these days.
- Happy that Music and Photos survived the upgrade with no issues (and maybe even a little better performance?).
- All of my old crusty menubar apps seem to work so far (Last.fm Scrobbler, Backblaze).
- No issues with virtual desktops (i.e. – Mission Control), terminal sessions, Screen Sharing or iCloud Notes.
- The Apple Silicon stuff is impressive – guessing my first one will be an iMac next year.
- I would be clamoring for a new Air if they would’ve made the screen bezel smaller – that is the only thing I envy on our fleet of Dell XPS laptops.
In other Kingsbury Apple news, Colleen got her new Max on Friday and loves it. I’m still happy with my decision to get the smaller phone (and the iPad Pro for all of us to use as needed). Not really using the pencil, though (so far).Originally published by DK on November 15, 2020 at 12:25 am
