Redesigning MacOS

Improved control and notification center

The newly added control center allows you to reach the settings like brightness, volume, Wi-Fi and others easily. Most of them can be expanded for more options, just like what it was in iPads. You can still drag and drop the settings to the top menu just like before.

Oh ya, did we mention on the notification center had been combined with widgets? Notifications now come in like cards, which can be expanded or grouped. While widgets are mostly the same, they were given a new design, 3 different sizes for you to choose from, and you can customize the best view for yourself!

All-new Safari

One of the areas which received a tremendous upgrade – Safari. Let’s start with the display, where you can fully customize it. Change to your favorite background photo and decide what appear on the first page you see. Big Sur makes it easier to search for the tab that you are looking for by introduction a page preview when you hover over any tabs.

Security and Privacy

The new Safari now uses Intelligent Tracking Prevention to identify trackers and help prevent them from profiling you across the web. Simply click on the privacy button and start reviewing the cross‑site trackers Safari is actively preventing from profiling you on that web page.

In short, this will help you find out if there’s an app that’s collection your data or information and whether it shares it with a third party.
