macOS Big Sur is now in the hands of customers around the world. Update your Mac apps and product pages, and submit today.

Luckily, there is a utility called macOS Catalina Patcher, which lets you download the complete setup file from Apple’s servers. Here is how you can use this app to get a copy of macOS Catalina.

Build and test with the macOS 11 SDK

Update to Xcode 13 or later, which includes the macOS 11 SDK, and build your apps to take advantage of the latest advanced technologies in macOS Big Sur. Your apps will look better than ever on macOS Big Sur, thanks to an all-new interface that’s been finely tuned for the powerful features that make a Mac a Mac.

Universal Apps

When you open your project in Xcode 13, your app is automatically updated to produce release builds and archives as Universal apps. When you build your app, Xcode produces one binary “slice” for Apple Silicon and one for the Intel x86_64 CPU, then wraps them together as a single app bundle to share or submit to the Mac App Store. You can test this at any time by selecting “Any Mac” as the target in the toolbar.

Widgets

Easily build widgets using the WidgetKit framework and the new widget API for SwiftUI. Widgets now come in multiple sizes, and users can visit the new widget gallery to search, preview sizes, and add them to Notification Center to access important details at a glance.

Review guidelines

All apps submitted to the App Store are reviewed based on a set of technical, content, and design criteria. Make sure to review the App Review Guidelines before submitting your app.
