    MacOS Big Sur is out

    Released November 12th, 2020 as announced.
    Version 11.0.1, build 20B29
     

     

     

     
    Officially, this drops support for Ivy Bridge systems with Intel HD4000 graphics to raise the minimum requirements to Haswell graphics. Yet, as per all beta versions, Big Sur 11.0.1 still provides all the drivers required to support HD4000 graphics so it can be installed and run on such platforms with full graphics acceleration.
     
    nVidia Kepler graphics remain fully supported. A notable exception to these specifications appears to apply to the iMac14,1/2/3 (Haswell models with Iris Pro 5200 or Kepler GT7x5M graphics) that all appear officially unsupported.
     
    Also released at the same time:
    High Sierra 10.13.6 Security Update 2020-006 (build 17G14042), which should be the last one, High Sierra reaching end of support. Mojave 10.14.6 Security Update 2020-006 (build 18G6042).

    macOS Catalina 10.15.7 is out

    Released September 24th, 2020.
    Build 19H2.
     
    We thought 10.15.6 would be the last major Catalina version with further updates limited to Supplemental Updates or Security Updates only. Today, Apple proved us wrong and released 10.15.7 update today! Safe to install on our Hacks without specific issues or surprises to expect. 
     

     

     

     
     
    Security update 2020-005 for High Sierra (17G14033) and Mojave (18G6032) also released at the same time.

    macOS Catalina 10.15.6 is out

    Released July 15th, 2020.
    Build 19G73.
     
    This is most probably the last major update for Catalina with only Supplemental Updates or Security Updates to follow. Safe to install on our Hacks without specific issues or surprises to expect. Blessing issue remains for those of us who experience it since 10.15.5 and this requires a reset of NVRAM to avoid. Failing that, 10.16.5 still installs Ok but the temp update partition remains until the macOS Install Data folder located in /System/Volumes/Data is manually deleted.
     

     

     

     
    Security updates 2020-004 for High Sierra (17G14019) and Mojave (18G6020) released at the same time.
