My new MacBook Pro 13" (16GB 1TB SSD) arrived today, running Big Sur 11.0. System Preferences indicates that an update to Big Sur 11.0.1 is available.
Should I update now, or avoid the 11.0.1 update and wait for 11.1? I vaguely recall forum posts indicating problems with 11.0.1, but I don’t recall the specifics. A brief search showed a problem with Keyboard Maestro, but I do not use that software.
I believe I read on Howard Oakley’s site that he recommends updating right away.
I updated on my M1 mini and have not seen any issue
.01 updates tend to be fixes for minor bugs. I’d recommend upgrading, especially on a brand new system.
Thank you to @jec0047, @MaxxHouseMaid and @geoffaire. Upgraded to 11.0.1, no problems. Activated email accounts, installed 1Password and Dropbox, updated Apple’s productivity apps - Pages, Keynote, GarageBand, iMovie - all went smoothly and quickly.
The M1 MacBook Pro is outstanding! Keyboard is perfect. TouchID is instantaneous. Trackpad is great. Screen - bright and gorgeous. Battery charge is sipped ever so slowly. Fan noise … what fan noise? I have not heard it yet, even playing several Youtube videos simultaneously. Eventually I’ll fire up Final Cut Pro to stress it a bit.
I’m a happy camper so far.
Does this prevent the “bricking”?
I don’t know but in 16 years with modern Macs I’ve never had to do that, so I wouldn’t worry unless you have an odd edge case.
Did that several times, because it’s the quickest way for a “nuke&pave”. I want APFS encrypted as file system and would set that up from the get-go.
