With macOS Big Sur, Apple succeeds where Microsoft failed with Windows 8

When most people think of Apple these days, products like the iPad, iPhone and Apple Watch are probably the first things that come to mind. That makes a lot of sense, through these mobile platforms, Apple, along with Google with its Android mobile operating system, has fundamentally changed the way people interact with technology on a daily basis. 

While laptops aren’t going anywhere, no matter how many weird commercials Apple releases asking what a computer is, there is definitely a lot to be said about finding ways of melding the user experience between these different devices. 

That’s been tried before – both with Windows 8 and ChromeOS – with mixed results in terms of usability. However, it’s with macOS 11 Big Sur that Apple may have just cracked the code. This is due in part to the update’s new design elements and Mac Catalyst, which will bring essentially every iOS and iPadOS app to Mac.
