First M1 Apple Silicon Macs Now Arriving to Customers

The New macOS Big Sur is Suffering from a Major Problem Where it Bricks Older MacBook Pros as Soon as it is Installed

According to a report from Wccftech, many users who have updated to the new version are reporting that it has bricked their machines.

Delving into the Reddit and Apple support forum posts about the problem, it seems like an engineer was able to solve the issue after removing an IC chip for the HDMI chip, but it's unclear if that's the actual root of the glitch.

The users said they tried all of the troubleshooting techniques they know as well as those suggested by Apple's employees.

Third, the device will display a black screen.

The Big Sur update was announced during WWDC back in June and due to Apple's transition away from Intel-based CPUs to its own custom ARM-based chips, the update spent a lot longer in beta testing compared to previous generations. The backlight on the keyboard won't turn on, including the Caps Lock button LED.


Fourth, the fan will not make any noise at first but will become loud after a minute or so.

The HomePod mini became available for preorder on November 6, with the earliest shipments set for November 16.

The new M1 Macs are Now reaching customersAnd among the first people to get the new 13-inch MacBook Pro M1 with an octa-core CPU, octa-core GPU and 8GB unified memory, ran the much-anticipated R23 Cinebench Standard On the 13-inch 8GB MacBook Pro with 512GB storage to give us a better idea of the performance. Considering the fact that most affected laptops are out of warranty at this point, we will have to wait to see how Apple has planned to handle this problem on a wide scale.

KitGuru Says: If you have an older MacBook Pro, then perhaps steer clear of the new Big Sur update for the time being.

The cause of the issue also remains unknown. On its system status page for developers, Apple confirmed that an issue with the notarization service from 3 PM to 5:09 PM ET has been resolved.
