Some forum moderator, could you advise the MacRumos authors to write something about it, a dedicated article so we make it go around the web so that everyone can know (even Apple)?
Apple is breaking our habits of not testing software before releasing it. Big Sur is a complete failure!
I've decided to sell my MacBook just because of this.. no more apple computers for me..getting a pc instead..(will be so much powerful and I'll be able to get 4k at 60hz..+ window scaling
Yup, only thing Apple is good at these days is marketing..that's it..I think about the same. Their system and hardware are starting to be terrible crap.
A case with a butterfly keyboard, peeling off screen, battery problems, throttling and poor heat dissipation in a 13 inch mbp, many others issues can be mentioned ..
I'm currently working on a cheap Lenovo Legion Y540-17IRH, which has much stronger components for a much lower price, no problems ..
I bought an HDMI/USB-C 4k@60hz adapter. It seems like 60hz is working but my screen goes blank (loses connection) every 2-3 minutes or so.
Macbook pro with 64GB RAM 2TB HDD i9 Processor can't display 4k HDR at 60hz!!!!! $4800 for this machine and it can't even run a 4k display!
In general i agree with that its a nogo apple don't care about that but:
1) i got the original hdmi adapter by apple for free
2) i just have to press a button on my external keyboard or mouse and my computer awake. i don't see any difference with hdmi or usb-c.
in my case its even the opposite because the lg monitor provide just 60 Watt with power deliver over usb-c. it should be enough for a MBP 16 in idle but in most of the cases it made always problems after waking up (black screen, usb-devices connected to the monitor are not working). I had always to disconnect and connect the monitor until everything was working. with the apple adapter i can use my original apple power adapter with 96W which is working very well. before i had to plug it in on a second usb-c port to avoid the wake up problems.
This should not excuse apples bad support but the fact is the only thing what we can do is currently to use this solution which is not the worst.
With the adapter its even possible to use a single port solution and there is no limitation of hdmi compared to DP(usb-c) or tb connections.
Btw i don't think it will be ever fixed. They didn't cared about that with 11.2 so they will not care about it later (this is my experience). I wait for an apple watch unlock fix since years (slow/unusuable wifi if apple watch unlock is activated).
Say that you want to speak with a manager and you don't accept it. You have to be able to work and this is not possible anymore.Hi I want to spread the notice that Apple support firmly refuses to give the USB-C - AV digital free of charge. I called from Italy and also underlying that the problem is wide spread around the world, they said that there isn't the possibility to get free of charge the adapter.
So the unique option is to take legal action against Apple.
Let me say that this option is very complex for this kind of problem.
After 20 years with OSX I am seriously considering to come back to Windows...
