In addition, Apple warns that not all features are available on all devices, which means that even if (Apple Watch) gets the new update, you may not get all the new features depending on their age.

macOS Big Sur:

The (macOS Big Sur) update should arrive at the following Mac computers:

  • MacBook 2015 and later
  • MacBook Air – 2013 and newer versions

  • Mac mini – 2014 and newer versions
  • iMac – 2014 and newer versions
  • iMac Pro – 2017 release and newer versions
  • Mac Pro – 2013 and newer versions

This means that MacBook Air released in 2012, MacBook Pro released in mid-2012 and early 2013, Mac mini released in 2012 and 2013, and iMac devices released in 2012 and 2013 will not get macOS Big Sur).
