Make the most of your Mac with this witty, authoritative guide to macOS Big Sur.

Apple updates its Mac operating system every year, adding new features with every revision. But after twenty years of this updating cycle without a printed user guide to help customers, feature bloat and complexity have begun to weigh down the works.

For thirty years, the Mac faithful have turned to David Pogue’s Mac books to guide them. With Mac Unlocked, New York Times bestselling author Pogue introduces readers to the most radical Mac software redesign in Apple history, macOS Big Sur. Beginning Mac users and Windows refugees will gain an understanding of the Mac philosophy; Mac veterans will find a concise guide to what’s new in Big Sur, including its stunning visual and sonic redesign, the new Control Center for quick settings changes, and the built-in security auditing features.

With a 300 annotated illustrations, sparkling humor, and crystal-clear prose, Mac Unlocked is the new gold-standard guide to the Mac.

David Pogue is the host of twenty science specials on PBS NOVA, a five-time Emmy Award–winning technology and science correspondent for CBS Sunday Morning, and a New York Times bestselling author.
