macOS Catalina 10.15.2 released, may unofficially fix speaker pops and crackles in MacBook Pro
Apple released the latest version of macOS earlier this week. In addition to a few minor feature additions and bug fixes, macOS Catalina 10.15.2 has unofficially fixed a major problem plaguing MacBook and MacBook Pro speakers, according to users.
The official update brings new layouts to Apple News+ stories, new links in the Stocks app, and support for English and French News stories for Canadian users. The column browser view in the Music app has been restored. There is now support for using an iPhone or iPad to remotely control the Music and TV apps. The bug that prevented some Macs with Apple’s T2 security chip from accepting a user login has been fixed.
According to a Forbes article, multiple users are reporting that the speaker crackle that has plagued some MacBooks and MacBook Pros has been fixed with this update. Apple hasn’t officially commented on this, though, so consider this an unofficial byproduct of the new update.
The full changelog can be found at Apple’s website.
