Apple has released the first public beta of its upcoming upgrade, macOS 11 or Big Sur. Apple had earlier said that it would deliver the public beta in July but the company missed its deadline. Now it is expected that the release of macOS 11 will occur anytime before the end of this year.

To get the preview of macOS Big Sur, users must enroll with Apple’s beta program using the Apple ID. Post which, user can install the upgrade by navigating to About this Mac > Software Update from the Apple menu.

Earlier Apple had warned the customers against installing the macOS Big Sur beta on production Macs. “We strongly recommend installing beta software on a secondary system or device, or on a secondary partition on your Mac,” the company said at the start of the beta program’s terms. It also advised users to back up their Macs before upgrading to the preliminary Big Sur.

To revert the preview and return to the previous OS, users must unenroll a Mac from the beta program and then restore the production-grade operating system using the Time Machine-created backup.
