So I updated to Big Sur on the 8GB 2016 12″ MacBook to test the final public release performance and whilst it does run a bit faster than the beta I’d not recommend it. It looks fantastic but there is a lot of lag in the experience on this little machine and I’ll be revertingContinue reading “Can you run macOS Big Sur on the 12” MacBook?”
Source: Apple Big Sur launches to the public today, here’s the Apple page on what’s new. Personally I’d hold off for the next patch before installing and if you have 8GB RAM I’d carefully consider giving it a miss for now.

At this point I can’t recommend upgrading to Big Sur if you are runningContinue reading “Should you upgrade to macOS Big Sur on a MacBook 12”?”
I’m probably writing something that a lot of Mac users will know but coming from an iPad the Music app on macOS needs a lot of work. I’ve been using it for a week or so and wow is it clunky and buggy in my experience. As you can see above I’ve done a searchContinue reading “Apple Music on macOS needs some work”
I trashed my beloved iPad Pro 10.5″ and my iPad mini 2 is proving frustrating trying to do production work so I’ve switched back to the 12″ MacBook that’s been sat unloved mostly for the last few years. It’s a base model and comes with that original (badly thought of) keyboard. Here’s my experience ofContinue reading “Coming back to macOS”
