How To Download And Install MacOS Big Sur On Apple Devices

For most of the times, the supported devices get a notification for a new update. And since automatic update features are generally active on such devices, the macOS updates are downloaded automatically. However, you can check for the update and install (if available) manually and also install it from the Mac App Store. Following are the steps to download the update manually:

Step 1: Switch on the Apple device which needs to be updated.

Step 2: Now, locate the Apple menu at the top-left corner of the display and select the System Preferences tab.

Step 3: Select the Software Update option and download the update. That's pretty much you need to do for a manual macOS Big Sur update.
