As part of the traditional WWDC 2020 developer conference, Apple introduced the next operating system update for Mac computers.
macOS 10.16 is called Big Sur in honor of the Central California coast region, where the Santa Lucia mountain range abruptly breaks off to the Pacific coast. At the moment, the operating system is available only to registered developers. The public version will be available in July, and the official release in the fall of 2020.
