The Release Candidate version of macOS Big Sur 11.2 is now available for developers. It comes after Apple released iOS 14.4 and watchOS 7.3 RC versions earlier today. Check out the full macOS Big Sur 11.2 release notes below.
As a reminder, Apple has moved away from the Golden Master name previously used for the near-final beta versions. Instead, in the future, the company will use the term “Release Candidate,” or RC, to refer to a near-final beta.
Developers can update to macOS Big Sur 11.2 RC by heading to the System Preferences app and then looking for the software update option. If you don’t immediately see the update available for download, keep checking as it’s still rolling out and may take a few minutes to reach your device. The update has version number 20D53.
