Apple has today released a macOS Big Sur update, making version 11.5.2 available for everyone to download right now. The update doesn’t appear to bring any big new features to the table but rather focuses on fixing bugs.
It isn’t clear what the new update actually does offer, however. The release notes currently say nothing more than the fact it brings offers “bug fixes for your Mac.”
People are downloading the update now so we will hopefully learn if any game-changing bugs have been squashed in this particular release.
Regardless, we’d always suggest that people install new releases like this as soon as possible. There is little reason not to, and not knowing what the bug fixes are could suggest it’s something under the hood that we aren’t aware of yet.
Apple’s macOS 11.5.1 update arrived just a couple of weeks ago and brought its own fixes, that time in the shape of security improvements. Apple tends to release a steady stream of updates to keep its operating systems as bug-free as possible and this release is no different.
Apple does have a much bigger update on the horizon, of course. The macOS Monterey update is expected to be made available to the world this fall, with developers and those on the public beta program currently testing the update.
