Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “Hands-on: Apple's new 'Hello' screen saver for M1 Macs running macOS 11.3 [Video] - 9to5Mac”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

New M1 iMacs will ship with a new screen saver in macOS 11.3 RC entitled Hello, a not-so-subtle homage to the original Macintosh, and to the original iMac. The new Hello screen saver is available in macOS 11.3 RC, and can run on any M1 Mac with a little bit of finessing. Watch our hands-on video for more details.

To use the new Hello screen saver, you’ll first need to be running the macOS 11.3 RC. From there, it’s just a matter of visiting the following location in Finder: /System/Library/Screen Savers/ and copying the Hello.screen saver to your desktop.

Rename the Hello.saver to Hellocopy.saver and then double-click it to install. You’ll be prompted to verify the install using your administrator password. Once verified, the screen saver will be installed and available in System Preferences → Desktop & Screen Saver → Screen Saver.

Keep in mind that the Hello screen saver requires macOS 11.3, so if you try to install it on an earlier version of macOS, you’ll be met with an error telling you that 11.3 is required. Watch our video below if you need additional guidance.

Select the Hello screen saver, and click preview to see a preview of it in action. What’s really cool is that the screen saver features several configurable options to adjust the look.
