After a three-month beta, Apple has released macOS 11.3 to the public. The new software comes with a variety of new features for the Reminders app, Apple Music, HomePod support, M1 optimizations, AirTags support, an important malware fix, and more.

macOS 11.3 is officially available for all users and should show up in System Preferences > Software Update shortly if it’s not already.

macOS Big Sur 11.3 features new sorting options in Reminders, the ability to set audio output to Stereo HomePods as default, and support for the latest Xbox/PlayStation controllers.

There is also a new warranty feature under the About This Mac section, new Autoplay feature in Apple Music that previously debuted in iOS 14, and some tweaks to the Touch Alternatives menu, and improved Safari customizations.

There’s also support for AirTags, the updated Find My app, Podcasts app, and enhancements for M1 Macs.

Notably, macOS 11.3 also brings another fix for the Shlayer malware that was discovered last year (via TechCrunch)
