Folks,
I have a mid 2015 15” rMBP. Will it work on Big Sur? More importantly, is there any issues with Photoshop and Wacom tablet? I had issues in the part with some MacOS updates and would not want to repeat the experience.
Thanks!

No issue with latest driver EXCEPT that Gatekeeper might see it as an unidentified developer. The installer is finicky and you might have to disable and re-enable permissions in the Security and Privacy pref pane.

Permission warnings all over the place here after a clean install (even after toggling them off and on in settings). Will wait for Wacom to work on their drivers before upgrading to Big Sur on my work computer...

When the instruction to install the Wacom require you to restart your computer more than 3 times, log in and out more than 2 times and go into security setting to uncheck and then recheck boxes...there's a serious problem. I tried and tried and then said, "forget it" and removed everything Wacom off of my Mac Pro. And that was not easy either.

Dear Wacom, get your install fixed instead of having us hack our computers to get your program installed.

One of the reasons I still ride with Mojave, especially on my 2015 rMBP. Not missing anything, but having full 32bit support, including old wacom drivers still running as they should, rather than Crapalina killing them. Same goes for my audio and DJing software. Newer is not always better.

It's has been quite finicky for me, and even more-so in wireless mode, the connection has like a 1 in 5 chance to stick and i have to keep turning the tablet on and off until it works.

I just spoke to a technical specialist. He stated, "our latest drivers work perfectly with Big Sur" and "our software works with all versions of macOS. It's Apple that keeps changing its security settings. That is why we provide instructions on how to circumvent the new security measures."

I have been aware of issues with OS updates. However, I never had a problem with my Wacom until I upgraded to Big Sur. I realized I was not going to get anywhere when the tech repeated that the latest version works perfectly with Big Sur. It appears I have to wait longer for a solution.
