Apple’s new M1 Macs were warmly received by reviewers, but they did cause headaches for some users.
Among the most annoying issues reported were Bluetooth troubles. Some users said they couldn’t connect their Mac to various Bluetooth peripherals, and some experienced random disconnects from Bluetooth devices. Now, it seems Apple is working on a fix.
The Atlantic writer Ian Bogost (via The 8-Bit) has experienced these issues himself. He managed to temporarily fix them by buying a new mouse and plugging in his keyboard, but an actual solution should be coming soon.
Solved my M1 Mac Bluetooth issues by plugging in my keyboard and buying a Logitech mouse with its own Bluetooth dongle.
(Apple tells me a MacOS fix is in progress and forthcoming just about anytime. But jeez.)

“Apple tells me a MacOS fix is in progress and forthcoming just about anytime,” he tweeted.
This is good news, as it’s the first time we’ve seen Apple actually acknowledge the issue that was fairly widely reported on Reddit and Apple’s own forums. Also, this means that the issue isn’t hardware-related and can be fixed with a software update, which will probably cause a collective sigh of relief among M1 Mac users.
We don’t know when, exactly, the fix is coming, but it could be a part of the upcoming macOS Big Sur 11.2 update, which is currently available to beta testers and developers. Apple’s release notes for the update do not have any details on what’s inside, however.
Despite the Bluetooth problems, Apple’s M1 Macs, which include the new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro and Mac mini, have been widely praised for their performance and battery life.
