Its been over a month after Apple revealed that they would be switching to their own processors for the Macs, namely Apple Silicon. According to several users, there is a resolution issue in the Ultrawide and Super-Ultrawide Displays on M1 Macs.
Apple has acknowledged this issue and has mentioned that an update is on its way to fix it. The support document mentions,
“If the supported resolution isn’t available on an ultrawide or super-ultrawide external display connected to your Mac with Apple M1 chip. If you connect an ultrawide or super-ultrawide monitor to your Mac with Apple M1 chip, some resolutions supported by your display may not be available.
Apple is aware of this issue, and resolution is planned for a future macOS update.”
There is no mentioned date when the update would arrive, but it’s most likely to come with the next macOS update coming in January. Until then, Apple suggests the users use a supported resolution on the Monitors running Apple Silicon.
“To see the additional resolutions for your external display, choose Apple menu > System Preferences, click Displays, then press and hold the Option key while you click Scaled.”
We are just a week away from January, so it should not be tough for the users to bear the inconvenience until the patch has been released.
