Macos Big Sur: Software updates should be thwarted

Apple has made amendments in big sur alias macos 11, which should significantly accelerate the update of operating system components. As the group says in its preview of the new central mac software, after the upgrade on macos 11 new updates are played partly in the background in the background. These were thereby also finished faster. "It’s easier than ever to keep your mac up to date and safe", praises apple himself.

Updates are often avoided

So far, you have to set up as apple users to wait for several minutes as soon as operating system or security updates are recorded – partially requires the complete process depending on the machine 15 minutes and more. The mac is completely blocked during this time and the user sees only based on a progress bar on a black background, which just happens. Particularly long lasting firmware updates of the efi or the integrated safety chip – here are several reboots necessary.

Some users tend to lift them due to the slow updates, and thus to leave their computers with safety swallowing in production plant – something that apple is looking for the update acceleration to avoid art. Exact technical details have not yet been mentioned yet – as macos big sur is currently only in the first beta, which apple has not missed any update yet, the superpendent updating process could not be observed live yet.

Food to ios?

However, it is likely that apple works in macos 11 similar as ios. There, the update is prepared in the background before the user must actually initiate a restart at which the system files are changed directly. Already this ensures a more pleasant use process, as you can first use the ios device all normally.

aha, from macos 10.15 will be macos 11 – and is called big sur! This is a kustenstreifen in the us state of california.

Macos big sur also brings another innovation: the system partition is artisticly signed cryptographically. Thus, the operating system ensures that malware or hackers can not compromise the core software. Also this could help with updates because apple is always informed about the current actual state.
