Last night Apple released a new update for our Mac’s operating system. Thus, macOS Big Sur has reached version 11.5.2, which focuses on bug fixes and improving performance.

An update that we know very little about

Normally, Apple accompanies the release of updates with a list of the changes made. This time, however, the list simply lists the “bug fixes for your Mac”, which leaves us little clue as to what that may refer to.

On the security front, after seeing several fixes coming in macOS 11.5 and 11.5.1, version 11.5.2 “does not have CVE entries released.” In other words, no improvement is made in terms of security.

Even without knowing exactly which errors are fixed in this version, the recommendation will still be to update our machines as soon as possible. The update can be found in System Preferences> Software Update.

We can venture, without having more data on this subject, that this update has just fine-tuned some details and is preparing for the arrival of macOS 12 Monterey this fall. An update which, however, is the recommended installation.
