macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 solves a major problem

A new update is available for macOS Big Sur, the fourth released since the launch of the platform in November. The Apple operating system thus passes to version 11.2.2.

macOS Big Sur: update 11.2.2 solves problems with dock and dongle

The changelog refers to the resolution of a problem with third-party accessories, more specifically USB-C connected dongles and docks. The MacBook Pro and MacBook Air models (even the latest generation ones with M1 chip) are affected, in some cases with disastrous results, so much so that computers are completely out of order. Below is a translated form of what is read in the document.

macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 prevents MacBook Pro (2019 and later) and MacBook Air (2020 and later) models from being damaged when connected to some Non-compliant hubs and docks powered via USB-C.

This is not the first update for Big Sur that has anything to do with charging and power-related hitches. The previous 11.2.1 brought with it a corrective for those who once reached 0% of the charge level were no longer able to use the laptop if not always keeping it connected to the socket. A problem that Apple has chosen to tackle by launching a free battery replacement campaign.

Staying on the subject, in recent days a considerable number of users have reported an abnormal use of SSDs on MacBooks with M1 chip, such as to significantly reduce their life cycle. In this regard, to date, no official statements have arrived from the bitten apple.
