Apple releases macOS Big Sur 11.2.2 to fix serious hub and dock issues
It may only be four months since macOS Big Sur launched, but already Apple has released its fourth significant update.
Big Sur 11.2.2 is here, and it's an important update for owners of certain MacBook Pro and MacBook Air laptops. There have been numerous reports of problems with third-party USB-C hubs and docks.
- Apple fixes serious sudo vulnerability in macOS
- MacBook Pro battery not charging properly? Apple may give you a free replacement
- Apple blocks sideloading of iOS apps on M1 Macs
There is almost too much choice when it comes to third-party hubs and docks, so it is perhaps not surprising that some of them have proved to be problematic. We're not just talking about hubs and docks not working properly, we're talking damage being caused to expensive Apple hardware.
Apple says of the update:
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.
