MacOS 12.1, the first significant upgrade for macOS Monterey, is finally out. The version fixes various errors and adds new functionality, as detailed in the changelog below. It’s unclear whether Monterey’s memory leak issue is still there in macOS 12.1. However, we haven’t seen Control Centre’s RAM use inflate like it did in macOS 12.0.1.

Similarly, we will have to wait to see if any unresolved concerns from earlier releases are still there or not. Apple, on the other hand, claims to have fixed a problem that stopped some MacBook Pro 16 notebooks from charging via MagSafe when they were turned off. HDR video viewing on YouTube should no longer induce panic on 2021 MacBook Pro devices.
