macOS Big Sur downloads at a crawl for many as Apple Developer site is down

Apple just released its major macOS update with Big Sur. While downloads are often slow with the large file and many users trying to get the software at the same time, it looks like download times are particularly slow this year. Meanwhile, it seems that Apple’s Developer website is down.

macOS 11 Big Sur is roughly 12GB in size and will take a bit to download. But even users with fast to very fast internet service are seeing estimates of 12+ hours all the way up to 7 days in some cases. That points to the issue likely being on Apple’s end.

At the same time, Apple’s Developer website seems to be inaccessible which could be related to the very slow pace of macOS Big Sur downloads. Some users are also reporting the download failing and having to start over.

Here’s what we’re seeing when trying to load Apple’s Developer website:
