This may mark the first time that macOS users will be able to stream Netflix in 4K. Previously, streaming 4K Netflix on a computer at all required you to be on Windows and using Microsoft’s Edge browser or the Netflix Windows 10 app. That means, in theory, you could watch Netflix in 4K on a Mac via Windows in a Boot Camp partition — but just loading up Safari, which is installed with macOS Big Sur, could be a far easier option once Big Sur is released (it’s scheduled to come out this fall).

If you don’t have the combination of macOS Big Sur, one of the supported Macs, and Netflix’s Premium plan, Netflix streams on macOS may be capped at 1080p resolution — and only if you’re using Safari. If you’re using Chrome or Firefox, Netflix may stream as low at 720p, according to a Netflix support document.

Netflix isn’t the only video platform getting a 4K boost with Apple’s upcoming software updates, as Apple announced last week that the Apple TV 4K will finally be able to play YouTube at 4K with tvOS 14.
