MacBook owners who have been experiencing battery drain issues can now celebrate, as Apple has released the macOS 12.2 update to fix the problem.
Some users have previously claimed that their MacBook’s batteries would deplete while the device was sleeping, eventually reaching 0% overnight. Bluetooth could be the cause of the drainage, according to evidence. However, other customers reported that the problem persisted even when Bluetooth was switched off before closing their PCs.
According to MacWorld:
MacOS Monterey users are taking to social media to seek assistance with an apparent glitch that leads MacBooks running macOS Monterey 12.2 to lose all battery power overnight. According to multiple Twitter postings, customers are reporting that their MacBooks are waking up from sleep dozens of times per night, draining the battery. Both Intel and M1 Macs appear to be affected by the issue.Advertisement
The update fixes “an issue for Intel-based Mac computers that may cause the battery to deplete during sleep when connected to Bluetooth devices,” according to the release notes for v. 12.2.1.
Apple also announced upgrades for iOS, iPadOS, and WatchOS on Thursday.
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you should upgrade to 15.3.1 as soon as possible, since Apple has incorporated solutions for a number of security holes that might be actively exploited.
The update will also fix a fault with a braille-related accessibility function, according to AppleTrack. While watchOS v. 8.4.2 is only a minor update, it does not include any security fixes.
