Nobody knows for sure, but I suspect they will release developer beta 3 as public beta 1. Developer beta 3 is still not out, and usually the public beta comes few days later, especially when in that early stage of the beta testing. I would expect it by the end of the next week, but this is just a guess. Another possibility is if developer beta 3 is released today, then the public beta might be released by the end of this week, but this seems less likely.Does anyone know when Big Sur is being released because all I got after partitioning my hard drive for it was a beta of 10.15.6 of mac OS Catalina and now Im wondering if to put the HD back to its usual size?
you should be creating new containers, instead of partitions. Partitions cut up the harddrive, and to use the space again, you have to repartition allocating space to one partition or the other.
With containers, you basically set up categories for your files. Each container acts like a separate partition, but free space is shared between all containers in the group. That way, you don't have to worry about allocating too much or too little space for a partition, and can easily add and remove containers on the fly really easily.
To be honest, not sure how to set up new containers on Catalina
That description is not quite correct.it's super simple! Just open Disk Utility. Instead of clicking the button for partioning, just go to the plus/minus "Volume" button group (I'm in German, so it may be slightly different in English). With the plus you can easily add a new APFS-Volume as a container.
If macOS Big Sur 11 beta is installed into the same APFS container as previous versions of macOS, system software updates can no longer be installed on the previous versions of macOS. (64411484)
Do we think they is why the public beta isn’t realised yet because the every day user won’t know how to partition their machine.
The requirement from Apple is that Big Sur should not be installed in the same container as Catalina or Mojave. The partition process will create a new APFS container by default. It is possible to create other partition types such as HFS+ or ExFat.
Weird that I didn't hear about this. I was able to install 10.15.6 just fine in a container dual-booting Catalina and Big Sur.
