Magisk is the most popular rooting method for Android devices. The developer topjohnwu has been working on Magisk canary builds for quite some time now to bring root for the latest Android 11 firmware update. If you don’t already know, Google released Android 11 developer preview builds for the Pixel series. Plus, we also have Android 11 generic system images (GSI) builds officially from Google as well as unofficial Android R GSI builds from various developers. Most importantly, Magisk developer topjohnwu today released a Magisk Canary build that can root the Android 11 Developer Preview update.
The developer John Wu just tweeted on his twitter handle that the latest Magisk build successfully roots Android 11.
60 days without root, this bad boy finally get some Magisk love 🥰🥰 pic.twitter.com/tEG6P0p32x

However, note that this is the first Canary build of Magisk that should work on the latest Android 11 Developer Preview released for Google Pixel devices. It has also been tested with GSI builds. This being an initial beta build, you can expect some bugs at the moment. We would suggest waiting for the next stable Magisk 21 zip release for more compatibility with Android 11. Moreover, the developer topjohnwu says that SafetyNet bypass also works. However, it is still uncertain how long that will last as Google may soon roll out hardware attestation for SafetyNet.
Here is a screenshot for the latest Magisk Canary build. Download links below.
