macOS 11 (Big Sur) status update

We know that macOS 11 support is top of mind for many customers, and we want to let everyone know that we are currently working on supporting macOS Big Sur and the new Apple Silicon chips.

Apple recently released macOS 11 (Big Sur). As part of the release Apple also updated their licensing agreement (Section 3) which requires all services providers that offer Apple-based compute, including CircleCI, to lease entire machines to customers for a minimum of 24 hours at a time.

We are aware of these requirements and are working on a path to offering macOS Big Sur on CircleCI. We don’t have the specifics of our Big Sur offering available yet, but we are actively working on a solution and will provide regular updates in this thread as we have more information to share.
