The new software is apparently safe for all Mac users who have updated to Max Monterey without having to shut down their computers.
Earlier this week, Report published That’s something the old Mac is brick after updating to the company’s new operating system. As if that wasn’t bad enough, some users said the update also messed up their device’s ports, meaning they couldn’t turn them on to try to fix the problem. At the time, some users thought the problem might be related to the device’s firmware, a theory the company confirmed Friday.
Apple said Renেনে Ritchie on YouTube That it has identified and fixed a problem with the firmware on the Apple T2 security chip, which has been used in 16 Mac models released in the last three years.
These Included 13, 15, and 16-inch MacBook Pro models have been released from 2018 to 2020; 13-inch MacBook Air with Retina display released from 2018 to 2020; Mac Mini from 2018; Mac Pro from 2019; Mac Pro Rack from 2019; iMac Pro; And iMac from 2020.
“We’ve identified and fixed an issue with the firmware on the Apple T2 security chip that prevents a very small number of users from booting their Mac after updating MacOS,” Apple said. According to Richie. “The updated firmware is now included with existing macOS updates. Anyone affected by this issue can contact Apple Support for assistance. ”
Gizmodo reached out to Apple on Friday to comment on the matter, but we received no response at the time of release. We will make sure to update this blog when we hear back
As directed by 9 to 5 Mac, Unfortunately this does not mean that users who have already been affected by the problem can breathe a sigh of relief. (Lastly, poor people can’t turn on their computers). These users need to contact Apple Support to fix their device. However, Apple’s update to the firmware means that users have computers with Apple T2 security chips — like your real ones, who haven’t updated from Parania — so they don’t have to worry about their computers dying when downloading Monterey.
By all means, this is great news. Monterey is packed with great new features, which I scratched to try! Just, You know, it’s not enough to leave me without a computer for a few days. It really seems that the affected users have got the short edge of the stick here, especially if they have to go to the Apple Store to fix their computer. I mean, that was what they did Update.
For those who have been affected, I feel for you, and hope you can turn on your Mac soon.
