The company seeded the first beta of macOS Big Sur 11.3 to registered developers on Tuesday, just a day after releasing macOS 11.2 and the first beta versions of iOS 14.5, watchOS 7.4, and tvOS 14.5.

As noted by Rene Ritchie, the new macOS 11.3 beta includes redesigned tabs for Apple News+; a new Made for You shortcut and live events in Listen Now for Apple Music; and better sorting options in the Reminders app.

The first beta also contains iPhone and iPad app preference panes for keyboard touch alternatives and more customization options in Safari.

Like iOS 14.5 and iPadOS 14.5, macOS 11.3 beta 1 also introduces support for the PlayStation 5 DualSense and Xbox Series X game controllers.

The macOS Big Sur 11.3 beta is currently available for registered developers, and a public beta version should be made available within a week.

    Apple needs to fix the Extension bug with @OWC and @softraid. Once installing 11.2 or higher you cannot access your raid drive or mount for M1 Macs.

    I've given up on SoftRAID that happens all the time with every update to macOS.  Use the SoftRAID utility to revert to Apple's RAID drivers and you will be all set after a reboot.
