macOS 11.2.2

Juli Clover:

According to Apple’s release notes, the macOS Big Sur update prevents 2019 or later MacBook Pro models and 2020 or later MacBook Air models from being damaged when connected to certain third-party, non-compliant powered USB-C hubs and docks.

There have been several reports on Reddit from Mac users who have connected USB-C hubs and docks to their machines, resulting in the machine becoming non-functional. Affected Macs appear to go blank and unresponsive shortly after connecting the dock. Many of the users who experienced issues were using hubs and docks not purchased from reputable companies.

Howard Oakley:

The update is 2.6 GB for Intel models, and Apple doesn’t provide any details of changes which affect other models.

Are even minor updates huge these days because of the dyld_shared_cache?

“Many of the users who experienced issues were using hubs and docks not purchased from reputable companies.”
