Apple has seeded the first beta of macOS Big Sur 11.3 to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming just a few days after the release of macOS 2018-001, a bug fix update.
The Software Update mechanism in System Preferences provides download for macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta.
There are new customization options for Safari, allowing users to move Favorites, Reading List, Siri Suggestions, Privacy Report, and more around on the start page. Developers also have access to the Start Page functionality for a new integration.
The update also enhances iOS apps on M1 Macs. There is a preferences pane that allows you to set keyboard commands for touch input alternatives, plus iOS apps launch with a larger window if Mac’s display allows it.
Support for the new PlayStation 5 DualSense and Xbox S controllers is added for use with macOS games.
In the Reminder app, you have the option to print lists by going to File > Print by sorting them with the Due Date, Creation Date, Priority, or Title options. It is also possible to move reminders manually across drag-and-drop lists, something that was not possible before.
Apple Music now offers a “Made For You” mix of your favorite tracks for making playlists, and Replay support has been added to the library.
In the News app, there is a redesigned “For You” section and a new Browse tab that makes it easier to browse through available content. Apple News+ users find the most popular magazines and journals much faster, as well as new tools for handling downloaded issues, are designed to help you find the best news.
