It is now safe for all Mac users to switch to macOS Monterey without the new program shutting down their computers.
Earlier this week, reports appeared that some old Macs were building bricks after changing the company’s new machines. As if it weren’t bad enough, some users reported that the repair also damaged their device’s ports, which meant they couldn’t open it to try to fix the problem. At the time, some users thought the issue could be related to firmware on devices, a theory confirmed by the company on Friday.
Apple said YouTuber Rene Ritchie that it detected and fixed the problem with firmware on the Apple T2 security device, which runs on 16 versions of Mac released three years ago.
These including 13, 15, and 16-inch MacBook Pros models released from 2018 to 2020; A 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 have identified and fixed the problem with the firmware on the Apple T2 security device which prevented a small number of users from launching their Mac after upgrading to macOS,” Apple said. according to Ritchie. “Updated firmware is now integrated with existing macOS updates. All users affected by this issue can contact Apple Support for assistance.”
Gizmodo contacted Apple on Friday to comment on the matter, but we have not received a response by the time it was published. We’ll make sure we update this blog if we hear.
As he said 9 to 5mc, this unfortunately does not mean that users who are already affected by this issue can rest. (Other than that, poor people can’t even turn on their computers). Users must contact Apple Support to have their devices repaired. However, Apple’s upgrade to firmware means that users of computers with the Apple T2 security chip — like yours, who have not been replaced by paranoia – should not worry that their computers will die after downloading Monterey.
By all means, this is good news. Monterey is full of new products, which I have always tried to try! Then, you know, it’s not enough to leave me without a computer for days. It seems like the affected users found the end of the stick here, especially after they finished going to the Apple Store to fix their computers. I mean, all he did was change.
For those affected, I listen to you, and I hope you can turn on your Mac soon.
