macOS Big Sur breaks older MacBook Pros

In various forums at Apple and Reddit, angry owners of older MacBook Pros report that the update to Big Sur blocks the computer and makes it unusable. Apparently affected are MacBook Pro 13 inches from 2013 and 2014. Apple’s new operating system is still officially supposed to run on these. It’s not that Apple warned about the update.

However, due to the large number of messages, there seems to be a problem that should not be ignored. Users report that when updating to MacOS Big Sur, the screen suddenly stayed black. Unfortunately, the usual measures did not work to get the computers running again. Safe mode and the Internet recovery function could no longer be called up.

It’s still a rumor, but the devices “bricked” in this way may have to be repaired at Apple. The name comes from the English term “brick” for brick. For nothing else – jokingly – hardware is used that can no longer be put into operation by the user.

In view of this news situation, we recommend that you no longer update MacBooks from the affected 2013 and 2014 vintages to Big Sur. Apple may have an update ready soon. So far, the cause of the problem is completely unclear, but it shows once again that our advice to always create a functional backup before updating to a new operating system is not unimportant, even if the updates often ran smoothly in the past.
