Hi everyone!

Today Apple has released macOS 11 "Big Sur", which introduces a significant interface overhaul on Macs. I've been using the betas for several months, and am very excited about the direction that macOS is taking.

To support Big Sur, Magic Maps version 2.3 will be released later today. This update is tested to 100% compatible with Big Sur, and includes a number of cosmetic improvements. Magic Maps 2 customers can get the version 2.3 update in the "Updates" tab in the Mac App Store.

Magic Maps 2.3 includes another big change - it's a Universal Binary, which means that will run perfectly on new M1 Apple hardware announced this week. So if you're interested in the brand-new Mac Mini, MacBook Air, or 13" MacBook Pro, don't let Magic Maps 2 hold you back!

For various technical reasons, the original Magic Maps is NOT compatible with Big Sur. Because Apple requires that all products on the App Store support the latest macOS operating system, I have been forced to remove the original Magic Maps from the App Store. Magic Maps 1 had a good life, but it's time to put full attention on Magic Maps 2 – and embrace a future with the Big Sur desktop environment, GPU-powered map projections, and Apple Silicon hardware. I'm confident you all will be pleased with it.

If you purchased Magic Maps 1, but haven't yet upgraded, it's not too late to receive the major 1st year discount on Magic Maps 2. Just download Magic Maps 2 from the App Store, and follow the on screen instructions.
