With The Apple Mac OS Big Sur operating system software Apple have upgraded Apple Safari to provide the very best internet security and privacy. The Apple Mac Big Sur with Apple Safari is perhaps the best internet protection web browser to use.

The Apple MacOS operating system software since Mac OS X has been focused on security, which is built into the Apple Mac operating system software, by using the newest and latest Apple MacOS operating system that you Apple Mac computer can support, the best Apple Mac security performance Is achieved.

macOS Speed and Performance.

The best Apple Mac computer performance is often achieved by upgrading to and installing macOS newest supported version for your Apple Mac computer.

Since Apple Mac OS High Sierra the Apple Mac OS operating system software has been optimised to support Flash storage known as SSD solid state technology.

The newest Apple Mac OS file system APFS allows an Apple Mac computer file system to run error free, and takes away the need for a storage volume to have storage de-fragmentation.

Over time the older Apple Mac file system HFS needed hard disk maintenance to keep the Apple Mac computer running efficiently.

With APFS the need for storage maintenance is simply making sure that the storage volume has enough storage space.

Apple have now moved all of their products to use flash storage, of course Apple optimised Apple Mac OS Big Sur and Mac OS Catalina to take advantage of the flash storage SSD solid state technology.

Of course, this means that Apple tested MacOS Catalina and Apple Mac OS Big Sur on conventional Hard Disk drives and quickly updated the Apple iMac range away from mechanical hard disk drive technology to flash storage SSD solid state drive technology in August 2020.

So the plan was to make Apple MacOS Big Sur only run and install on 2014 or newer Apple Mac computers, the use of flash storage SSD solid state drives will take over the conventional mechanical storage volumes.

For the very best performance upgrade, upgrading from a 1Tb SATA 5400 rpm or from 1 1Tb SATA 7200 rpm to a flash storage SSD solid state drive will give at least 66% Mac OS performance.

• As companies update their websites Apple Mac Safari becomes not useable on Mac OS Lion • Mac OS Mountain Lion • Mac OS Mavericks • Mac OS Yosemite, Apple Mac OS El Capitan is still useable for most websites, however this will change to Mac OS High Sierra • Mac OS Mojave • Mac OS Catalina over time.

• A known workaround for Apple Mac Safari on older Apple Mac OS operating systems is to install Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox, however this approach is not the best solution to follow, the best option is to update the Apple Mac computer to run a newer Apple Mac OS operating system software.

For home users and for small businesses that need the very best security, in some cases a new Apple Mac computer purchase is the best Apple Mac computer security solution.
