Apple has started rolling out macOS Sonoma 14.1.1 to the public with important bug fixes. This update comes two weeks after the release of macOS Sonoma 14.1 which debuted with New Music Features, Warranty status in System Settings, and more.
According to Apple’s Release Notes,
“This update provides important bug fixes and security updates and is recommended for all users.
Some features may not be available for all regions, or on all Apple devices.
For detailed information about the security content of this update, please visit: https://support.apple.com/kb/HT201222″
Although the release notes of the update say that there are security updates in macOS Sonoma 14.1.1, but the Apple’s Support page says “This update has no published CVE entries.”, similar to iOS 17.1.1, iPadOS 17.1.1, and watchOS 10.1.1.
macOS Sonoma is compatible with the following Macs:
- MacBook Air (2018 and later)
- MacBook Pro (2018 and later)
- iMac (2019 and later)
- iMac Pro (2017)
- Mac mini (2018 and later)
- Mac Studio (2022 and later)
- Mac Pro (2019 and later)
Apple also released macOS Ventura 13.6.2 specifically for MacBook Pro models released after 2021 and for the latest M3 iMac, which could likely fix the software update bug that users are facing. What’s that you ask? Strangely, users have reported that their 14-inch MacBook Pro with the M3 chip shipped with macOS Ventura 13.5 installed instead of macOS Sonoma. No big deal right? Users can just go to Software Updates and hit install on the macOS Sonoma Update. This is where the issue arises. The macOS Sonoma update is not available under Software Update and neither does using the App Store link work. As a workaround, users can turn on beta updates to update to macOS Sonoma 14.2 Beta. Let’s hope that macOS Ventura 13.6.2 fixes the bug and allows users to upgrade to the stable Sonoma Version.
Since the update is available for the MacBook Pro (2021 and later), users running Ventura on their MacBook Pro 2021 with M1 Pro and M1 Max, and MacBook Pro 2023 with M2 Pro and M2 Max can also update to this new version of Ventura.
It is highly recommended to update your Mac to the latest software for the best experience.
