Apple does not elaborate on how widespread this issue was, but it’s notable to see a new build of macOS released to the public with a singular bug fix.

macOS Big Sur 11.2 was first released last week, bringing Bluetooth stability improvements, as well as fixes for bugs related to external displays, iCloud, and the new ProRAW photos.

You can now update your Mac to the latest version of macOS Big Sur by heading to the Software Update menu in the System Preferences app. The update is available to all macOS Big Sur users and is not limited solely to the affected MacBook Pro machines.
