Is your Mac eligible for macOS Big Sur?

Apple has announced the 11th generation of the famous macOS software during the WWDC 2020 keynote. macOS Big Sur comes with redesigned Dock and Notification Center interfaces, that include refined app icons, remastered sounds, translucent themes and more. The Control Center has been imported from the iPhone and iPad, while stock apps like Safari and Messages have been significantly upgraded.
