According to reports, Apple plans on releasing the next version of macOS Monterey next week. macOS Monterey 12.1 should arrive with plenty of bug fixes and improvements, especially for the new MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16.

Christmas is around the corner, and Apple plans to gift its Mac owners a new version of macOS Monterey. According to MacRumors, Apple will release macOS Monterey 12.1 publicly next week. Hence, Macs should be able to move off Monterey 12.0.1 by the middle of this month.

While not a big update, Monterey 12.1 should address a few issues, some targeted at the new MacBook Pro 14 and MacBook Pro 16. Apparently, Monterey 12.1 fixes the charging issue that has affected some new 14-inch and 16-inch machines, which we have discussed separately.

Additionally, the same update makes good on a problem with YouTube where HDR content crashes Apple's latest MacBook Pros. Monterey 12.1 should fix menu bar items hiding behind the notch on 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro models, too.

It is unclear if Monterey 12.1 addresses memory leaks in Monterey 12.0.1, though. Anecdotally, we have seen Control Centre consuming over 4 GB of RAM; typically, it averages 1.8 GB. Restarting the process brings RAM usage to 25 MB, though.
