macOS Big Sur: these regressions that can annoy

« The biggest change since the launch of Mac OS X “. When he unveiled macOS Big Sur at WWDC, Craig Federighi didn’t go by half measures. And this was not to talk about the migration to Apple Silicon chips – historic decision if there was one – but a prelude to the presentation of the new interface of the system.

Those who have experienced the switch from a flat, drab Mac OS 9 to a bright and playful Mac OS X Aqua may find Federighi’s words vaguely exaggerated. From Catalina to Big Sur, while the change is visible, it is also not deep or dramatic. We can argue that the move from Mavericks to Yosemite in 2013 had been the occasion for a greater visual break, in the wake of iOS 7 a year earlier.

So much the better, we will say, we won’t have to learn everything again. However, here and there, there are small developments that give the feeling of a step backwards in terms of user comfort. Nothing fundamentally blocking – Apple did not break everything – but enough to shake up some habits and bitch from time to time.
