Apple’s next version of the Macintosh operating system MacOS 11 Big Sur will be released November 11, 2020 replacing macOS 10.15 Catalina. Please do NOT update to Big Sur until you’re ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE all your existing software is compatible with macOS 11 Big Sur.
Sony camera owners should be particularly wary of updating since Sony firmware updates released prior to macOS version updates are generally not compatible with the next macOS.
Sony camera owners should NOT update to Big Sur until all Sony camera & lens firmware is updated. Please make certain the firmware on every Sony camera & lens you own is updated BEFORE even considering macOS Big Sur update.
If you use Imaging Edge or Capture One, do NOT update until Big Sur compatible updates are available.
