When it makes a leap as big as Apple’s to its own SoCs in the Mac lineup, you have to expect that not all will turn out well. There are many changes to be made, and therefore it won’t always work perfectly. Now, for example, it seems that some flaws have started to appear that could be related to macOS Big Sur software.

This problem is said to be more common when using an HDMI cable to connect your Mac to a monitor rather than a Thunderbolt 3, although the reasons are not yet particularly clear.
On behalf of Apple, and as MacRumors has already shared, an investigation has already been opened to clarify the causes and remedy them as quickly as possible. No specific date has been given for a solution to be implemented, but they do. provided a series of actions to be taken in case that happens with our unit.

In principle, and from what has been seen in recent weeks, it could a problem directly related to the operating system itself, so we wouldn’t have to wait too long to see it resolved. However, if there was a hardware issue, Apple would take care of it quickly, so there is no need to worry.
