macOS Big Sur is a huge update to the Mac with a major UI overhaul, Control Center, Widgets and lots more. Apple has also redesigned the icons for the built in apps – some are more drastic than others.
Many like these changes, but some prefer the old look of the mixed up shapes, slanted rectangles and circles from OS X. Most icons are similar to iOS, but some, like the Messages, FaceTime and QuickTime icons have caused a bit of controversy between users.
We’ve gathered all of the app icons available in macOS 11 Big Sur and made them available to download. These are high-resolution, gathered right from macOS 11.0 Beta 1, and we’ll update them if any changes are made.
System Preferences also gets a slew of redesign icons. Whilst some are currently available, we’ve rounded up a few – such as the Screen Time and Network icons. These have a very distinct look, shiny and modern, with shadows and gradients. We’ve added the few present icons to the folder as well!
Update 01/07: We’ve sourced the new sounds in macOS Big Sur, available as playable audio files. You can set these as your own ringtones and sound effects on any device!
