Apple has finally released its macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 which is expected to fix some major issues of the tech giant manufacturer’s popular laptop. The company said that the latest version of its desktop software will prevent MacBook Air and MacBook Pro from getting heavy damage when using third-party, non-compliant powered USB-C accessories.
The popular iPhone manufacturer announced the release of its new macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 on Feb. 25. Apple stated that the new fixes will focus on the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro models from 2019 and 2020.
Apple said that “macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 prevents MacBook Pro (2019 or later) and MacBook Air (2020 or later) models from incurring damage when they are connected to certain third-party, non-compliant powered USB-C hubs and docks.”
However, the tech giant firm didn’t explain why and how the new bug is affecting MacBook Air and MacBook Pro. It is also unclear if there are really some MacBook users that experience heavy damage when using third-party USB-C hubs and docks. On the other hand, if you want to try the latest system, you can download it by navigating to your device’s Software Update menu, which is located in the System Preferences app. After that, your MacBook device will automatically install the latest macOS Big Sur 11.2.2.
Meanwhile, Apple also confirmed that the latest macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 is currently available to all macOS Big Sur users. But, the new fixes are only accessible by those who are really affected by the current third-party USB-C issues.
