Apple has released a new macOS Big Sur 11.5.2 update, delivering unspecified bug fixes for Mac users running the latest major operating system version. The update comes a little over two weeks after Apple released macOS 11.5.1.

if only Apple made it easy to manage software updates on large fleets. Running a unix command in Apple Remote Desktop basically does nothing!

I'm running in root: sudo softwareupdate -iaR

basically, it'll download the update but never try to install it. that command only seems to work if a user is already logged in.... I'm running this on 2017 (pre-T2 chip) iMacs.

This update did fix something on my side.
My brand new Mac mini M1 would not connect via wifi in the Finder with my iPhone and/or iPad, despite having done all the trusting required.
iPhone/iPad would connect via lightning cable/usb-c cable but as soon as I disconnected them they would disappear from the Finder left panel. Before you guys ask, I had checked the option of connecting via wifi.
Did the update half an hour ago and boom! both my iOS devices now connect via wifi.

Hope they fix the M1 iMac issue with connecting to Homepods via Airplay after waking from sleep.

Has anyone else noticed that their OneDrive badges on files and folders are missing after installing this update?
