Hey Apple users:— Jeff Johnson (@lapcatsoftware) November 12, 2020
If you're now experiencing hangs launching apps on the Mac, I figured out the problem using Little Snitch.
It's trustd connecting to https://t.co/FzIGwbGRan
Denying that connection fixes it, because OCSP is a soft failure.

😅 Looks like, when apps are launched, Gatekeeper is unable to check their validity over the internet, due to overwhelmed Apple servers. So, uh, let’s all hang in there! You got this, Apple devops!— Panic (@panic) November 12, 2020
Just upgraded my main machine to Catalina last week, thinking about scheduling my Big Sur upgrade for approximately 12-15 months from now. You guys are clearly more risk tolerant than I am 😂— Mike Rundle (@flyosity) November 12, 2020
Consensus in many tech circles was that Apple would never ever transition the Mac to its own silicon.— Neil Cybart (@neilcybart) November 12, 2020
Something to keep in mind when consensus solidifies around the next Mac-related topic.
I don't understand people who want Apple to put touch screens on their laptops. I have a laptop with a touch screen and I've never used it on purpose, but touch it accidentally while typing all the time— Jerry Neumann 🇺🇸 (@ganeumann) November 12, 2020
There's a lot of jumping to conclusions with those M1 benchmarks atm and it's kinda sad. Wait a week or 2 for proper real world based tests to come out and don't rely on worthless ones like geekbench— Fudge (@choco_bit) November 12, 2020
Whether it should support finger touch or not, the iMac should definitely have a design that supports Apple Pencil, like Microsoft’s Surface Studio— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) November 11, 2020
Holy shit this big sur update must be the worst upgrade experience I have observed. The mac I tried to update to is basically failing to install the update after an awfully slow download and my other mac is now having issues with trustd spinning when I launch apps. The hell apple— Armin Ronacher (@mitsuhiko) November 12, 2020
Good to know that if Apple has a server hiccup my Mac becomes a paperweight. Time to dust off the ol Linux ThinkPad.— Josh Centers (@jcenters) November 12, 2020
The problem with the Surface Studio: how many pro apps that you run on a $5k PC are rewritten for touch? Photoshop? Autocad? You can add a bit, but do you rewrite the whole UI? And for one low-volume PC? So: if Apple does add touch to the Mac, how many apps get redesigned for it?— Benedict Evans (@benedictevans) November 12, 2020
Been a long time since I’ve seen excitement around Mac benchmarks. The “waiting for PowerBook g5” days were long ago. Feels a bit like old times.— Arnold Kim (@arnoldkim) November 12, 2020
You gotta hand it to Apple's third-party dev community to have so many apps Apple-Silicon-native right out of the gate, including beta versions of Microsoft Office. There was always this idea of the 'app gap' for Microsoft & its modern efforts, but maybe it's just a developer gap— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) November 13, 2020
Apple: Let’s make all apps on our desktop OS phone home before they launch, what could possibly go wrong?— Paul Haddad (@tapbot_paul) November 12, 2020
I absolutely love the mindshare Apple’s M1 & Arm are getting. The knowledgeable can scream all they want at the marketing, but if they were *wise*, they’d realize the effects prove Apple’s marketing did a textbook move. And, thankfully, their narrative has obsoleted “MOAR CORES.”— Danilo "18pF flip-flop" Cominotti (@dcominottim) November 12, 2020
One of the more fascinating things with the Mac is how there is always that tension in the air between long-time users and Apple. It never goes away. You don't see a similar tension with any other Apple product category and corresponding user group.— Neil Cybart (@neilcybart) November 12, 2020
Speaking of shipping at scale, Apple has now shipped the Apple Silicon versions of its iWork suite, Garageband, Final Cut Pro, Logic, Motion, and Xcode. Compare and contrast with how other platforms have handled their ARM transitions… 🦗🎶 pic.twitter.com/EKfaC3SJVL— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) November 13, 2020
The ergonomics argument went out the window when they launched the Smart Keyboard for the iPad Pro 5 years ago. The macOS isn’t optimized for touch argument somewhat went out the window with Big Sur. I think we’re almost out of other reasons.— Mark Gurman (@markgurman) November 13, 2020
Big Sur is a really big deal; a turning point in the Mac's history that doesn't come along very often. I spent the last several months testing it and here’s my review on @Macstoriesnet:— John Voorhees (@johnvoorhees) November 12, 2020

The huge privacy elephant in the room here is the implication that Apple gets a timestamped call home telling them exactly what program you are running whenever you start one.— Chris Bagnall (@minotauruk) November 13, 2020
That's not cricket.
There needs to be a way of turning this shite off. https://t.co/PrsRqxvHa7
Before you run out and get the latest shiny just remember.— Paul Haddad (@tapbot_paul) November 12, 2020
1. 16GB of RAM, you can live with it, but do you want to?
2. There will be software that won’t work right away.
3. You’ll have to use Big Sur version .0.
4. Apple almost has to release a M1X sometime early next year.
Once upon a time the default advice was don’t upgrade on day 1 because your apps may not work.— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) November 12, 2020
For the past few years that wasn’t really a probem.
This year … I would wait. I’ve had at least a couple of my bipbobs not work or work oddly on Big Sur.
It’s okay to wait! https://t.co/WHVkLkVaee
One of my biggest frustrations with Big Sur is that Safari STILL does not allow you to set a websites as a single site browser / web app / separate window. Chrome and Edge let you do this right in the browser, with Safari you have to resort to third party tools.— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) November 12, 2020
Unimaginable. macOS unable to open any non-Apple application. The joy of Proprietary software. MacOS sends hashes of every executable to Apple server when trustd and syspolicyd cannot do so. The entire macOS stops working. https://t.co/sCellcCAr5— The Best Linux Blog In the Unixverse 🪔 (@nixcraft) November 13, 2020
First gen part puts entire industry to shame instantly. I would imagine Apple don’t plan to stay still. It’ll be like playing Mario Kart when the other player is a whole lap ahead and you’re wondering if they’re still there— Jon Masters 🏴☠️ (@jonmasters) November 12, 2020
Did everyone's mac shit the bed today or just mine?— Michael Arrington (@arrington) November 12, 2020
The only reason anybody is complaining about the 16GB RAM limit in Apple's new low-end M1 machines is that all the high-end-Mac people want them so bad. When the higher-end machines ship, they'll be *even faster* & more powerful — you just gotta wait 😂— Steve Troughton-Smith (@stroughtonsmith) November 12, 2020
Don’t assume the MacBook Air will be silent just because it’s fanless. Big Sur will play audio of spinning fans through the speakers during heavy workloads.— Craig Federighi Parody (@federighiOS) November 12, 2020
It should (will be) added but the utility for desktop apps will be nil. The real benefit to users and developers is for iPad and iPhone apps, many of which will never get tuned for mouse/keyboard which could be a lot of work for small number of users.— Steven Sinofsky (@stevesi) November 12, 2020
Ready for M1-powered Macs? So are we! All @OmniGroup apps are now available for M1 and macOS Big Sur, and we love how smooth and responsive they are!https://t.co/lrYM1AFxcY— The Omni Group (@OmniGroup) November 12, 2020
What a seamless transition. The future of the Mac has never looked brighter! pic.twitter.com/fStjbFgb1C
