Changes and fixes in the new MacOS Big Sur 11.2 update
Although not yet available for public use, Apple has released notes on upcoming updates for macOs Big Sur 11.2. MacOS Big Sur 11.2 fixes Bluetooth issues and improves reliability. Moreover, it also fixes a number of other issues by introducing the following changes:
External displays may display a black screen when connected to a Mac mini (M1, 2020) using an HDMI to DVI converter
Changes made to Apple ProRAW photos in the Photos app may not be saved
iCloud Drive may turn off after disabling iCloud Drive Desktop & Documents Folders option
System Preferences may not unlock when entering your administrator password
The Globe key may not display the Emoji and Symbols pane when pressed
Prior to the macOs Big Sur 11.2 system update, Macbook M1 chip users experienced various issues including connectivity issues. Problems also arise with connecting external displays to the new Mac, where some features are not compatible. This is after Apple left its old Intel system software in favor of a native M1 chip for Apple. Due to this change, only apps running natively by Apple are applicable to the latest Apple machines. Recent updates aim to fix these issues, though it’s still up to us whether it’s capable of doing so when it releases to the public.
