Macintosh’s impending macOS 12.1 update will fix some odd interactions between its new MacBook Pros’ notched displays and menu bar applications, which should presently don’t be blocked behind the notch, as per MacRumors.
Already, a few clients had detailed issues where menu bar icons could wind up getting pushed behind the notch if too many were open. Or then again, as Apple’s changelog portrays the issue, before macOS 12.1, “[menu] bar extras may be obscured by the camera housing on 2021 MacBook Pro computers.”
The bug in fact was uncommon in the first place, necessitating that clients had sufficient menu bar icons (referred to by Apple as “menu bar extras”) to reach from the right half of the display to the notch’s location, yet especially huge menu bar apps (like iStat Menus) could achieve the task.
As well as fixing the menu bar/notch bug, the new update additionally brings a few different issues, incorporating HDR issues with YouTube and MagSafe bugs on the 16-inch MacBook Pro.
macOS 12.1 is as yet in beta, however considering that the organization has seeded the release candidate version of the software to developers, the update (and the bug fix for the notch issues) ought to be carrying out to all clients in the coming weeks.
