A few days ago, there were reports that the macOS Big Sur 11.2 and 11.3 betas have a serious bug. If there is not enough free storage space, installing this update will have an adverse effect. The terrible part is that there is no prompt to inform users that there is no enough space. Installing this update without enough storage space could lead to permanent data loss. Apple has now resolved the free space issue in the new version of macOS Big Sur 11.2.1. The rollout of this new update is on presently.
Before the installation starts, the update will check and ensure that the device has enough free storage space. If the device does not have enough free space, the installer will prompt the user… “the selected disk does not have enough free space to upgrade the operating system”. It will also let the user know how much additional free space he needs to install the update.
macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 is now available – fixes MacBook Pro charging issues
Apple released the official version of macOS Big Sur 11.2 last week but this update comes with some issues. Today, the company once again released the official version of macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 update. With the Big Sur 11.2, some 2016 and 2017 MacBook Pro models fail to charge. The macOS Big Sur 11.2.1 reportedly solves this problem.
Apple did not release the update instructions this time. In addition, the company did not elaborate on the impact of this update. However, Apple released this new version of macOS with a single bug fix.
Users can now open the system preferences and then select the software update. After this, the user can manually download and install the update. For users who enable auto-update, it will be automatically installed on the system.
In addition, Apple also released supplementary updates for macOS Catalina and macOS Mojave, which solve some security issues. Apple is already conducting a Beta test on macOS Big Sur 11.3, which is the next major update of the operating system. However, the beta update is almost crippling some MacBooks.
Apple macOS Big Sur 11.1/11.2 still has external display connection problems
Since December last year, there have been multiple reports regarding Apple macOS Big Sur connectivity issues. According to the latest report, the Apple macOS Big Sur versions 11.1 and 11.2 has been experiencing external monitor connection problems. From the reports so far, it appears that the problem exists in two formats.
The first problem is that the USB-C port does not recognize the external display, making the external display unusable and unable to connect. This issue affects DisplayPort and HDMI displays connected directly and through hubs and adapters. Some users said they encountered this problem after upgrading from 11.1 to 11.2.
