Moreover, users cannot find a solution that can handle this. Apple's new MacBook Air, 13-inch MacBook Pro, and Mac mini models went up for pre-order on November 10, with shipments expected to arrive the following week. Some of the owners were also able to fix the black screen issues, however, but those two earlier variants of MacBook Pro (late 2013 and mid-2014) seem to be having the most severe problems for now.
Several MacBook Pro users recently took to Reddit, the MacRumors forums and Apple's Support Communities to ask for help with their devices. There is no clear evidence of what caused the problem, and the solution does not seem to work with simple methods such as resetting NVRAM or booting into safe mode.
For about a half hour or so starting at 4PM ET, Mac users worldwide who tried to open up third-party apps were suddenly noticing weird issues and slow launches, with the software just bouncing in their dock for minutes or failing to launch entirely.
Many of us are enjoying the new features of the recent macOS Big Sur update. Apple does claim its new M1 chip to deliver the best-in-class integrated graphics that let you edit 4K videos; and use heavy applications like Adobe Premiere Pro, Photoshop, Final Cut Pro at the highest resolution, and; support for 6K displays, media encoding, and decoding games, and many-many more. And when it started rolling to everyone since last week, updated users have raised common problems like black screen appearances. These are the servers only that made it impossible for the users to install the update. The issue appears to be resolved now, but as TechCrunch points out, it's possible the servers were overloaded as people updated to Big Sur and suddenly flooded it with requests to reauthorize older apps.
