Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming macOS Big Sur 11.2 update to developers for testing purposes, with the new beta coming a month after the first beta and two months after the initial macOS Big Sur release.


Developers can download the ‌‌macOS Big Sur‌‌ 11.2 beta using the Software Update mechanism in System Preferences after installing the proper profile from the Apple Developer Center.

It's not yet clear what's included in macOS Big Sur 11.2, and no new features were discovered in the first beta. It likely includes performance improvements, security updates, and fixes for bugs that weren't able to be addressed in the release version of ‌‌macOS Big Sur‌‌.

I've been having a horrible problem with EDID/resolution and multiple external 4K monitors in the first public beta of 11.2.

I know other people have reported similar if not the same issue as well.

Can anyone report if this issue is fixed?

M1 Macs have a lot of trouble with external displays, check the YPbPr vs. RGB thread.

Fortunately it all seems to be at the OS level and can be patched.

I'm on an Intel-based MacBook Pro. Was all fine prior to 11.2. Since then one of my external displays will only display at a much lower blurry resolution with an off colour. The EDID isn't being read from the display correctly. Boot into Windows via boot camp and everything is fine. It's killing me as it renders the display pretty much unusable. And I've also noticed a intermittent lag in the mouse pointer.

One of the things I am not a fan of in Big Sur is the lack of ability to reply to iMessage notifications, unless I am missing something?

Maybe in a later release they will give notifications more APIs that allow for quick actions with the notification system, such as taking calls from Teams.
