     System Requirements

     In marketing and technical documentation and elsewhere, Apple
     specifies that macOS Big Sur runs on these Macs:

 	MacBook (2015 and later)
 	MacBook Air (2013 and later)
 	MacBook Pro (Late 2013 and later)  <=====
 	iMac Pro (2017 and later)
 	iMac (2014 and later)
 	Mac mini (2014 and later)
 	Mac Pro (2013 and later)

 	Compared to the previous version of the macOS -- macOS
 	Catalina (10.15) -- macOS Big Sur (macOS 11) drops support
 	for the Mid-2012 MacBook Air; Mid-2012, Late 2012, and Early
 	2013 MacBook Pro; Late 2012, Early 2013, and Late 2013 iMac;
 	and Late 2012 Mac mini models.
