List of changes and fixes in macOS Big Sur Beta 5


Apple has released macOS Big Sur Beta 5 to registered developers, one day after it released the fifth beta of iOS 14, watchOS 7 and tvOS 14.

This beta does not support the 2020 27-inch iMac, Apple says. If you install it on that machine, it’s likely you’ll end up reinstalling macOS Catalina.
