Undoubtedly, one of the biggest achievements of Apple in 2020 can be considered the introduction of the M1 chip. Despite its unparalleled processing power and energy efficiency, the M1 chip is a positive step for Apple towards independence from Intel; But the first steps toward independence also present challenges for Apple. Mac M1 computers apparently do not support some resolutions; In fact, it is not possible to use the maximum resolution on some ultra-widescreen displays.
Apple executives reviewed the reports and announced that a software update will be released soon to fix the bugs. The criticism is not necessarily a sign of Apple’s poor performance in designing and developing the new Mac series. In fact, the new Mac series products with the M1 chip are now able to support different resolutions; But what users are asking for is support for resolutions for ultra-wide and super-ultra-wide displays.
For example, in the image above, you can see the settings in the macOS Big Sur operating system, which does not have the option to select the appropriate resolution for ultra-widescreen displays. Basically, using ultra-widescreen displays is an option that some users choose instead of using two or more monitors with a standard aspect ratio.
However, it should be noted that some Apple products, such as the MacBook Air or the 13-inch MacBook Pro, can only support one external display. With this account, users should be given the right to seek the use of a widescreen display. This is despite the fact that previous MacBook Air and MacBook Pro 13 models with Intel processors were able to support multiple displays.
Unfortunately, Cupertino residents have not yet specified when the new Mac OS update will be released to fix the bugs. However, Apple Support has reviewed and verified the reports, which is a good thing.
The new Mac Mini model also has its own limitations. Apple has only one HDMI port for its product; But it is possible to connect another monitor using the display port.
