Tech giant Apple has released an update to solve the battery drain issues some Mac users experienced since upgrading to macOS 12.2.

The release notes for the new version, 12.2.1, say it contains fixes for “an issue for Intel-based Mac computers that may cause the battery to drain during sleep when connected to Bluetooth peripherals,” reports The Verge.

Before Thursday’s updates, some users reported that their MacBooks’ batteries would drain while the computer was asleep, sometimes reaching 0 percent charge overnight.

While there was evidence that Bluetooth was the culprit, some users reported that turning off Bluetooth before closing their computers didn’t help, making it slightly unclear what the issue was.

Now, Apple said it is specifically fixing an issue with Bluetooth, and hopefully, it will work for everyone.

Apple also released updates for iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS on Thursday.

If you have got an iPhone or iPad, it is probably best to install the 15.3.1 update as soon as you can — Apple’s security page says it is made to fix a security flaw that may have been actively exploited, the report said.

AppleTrack notes that the update also solves a bug with a braille-related accessibility feature, watchOS 8.4.2, which appears to be relatively minor, with Apple not listing any security updates.

To update your Mac, go to System Preferences > Software Update. After refreshing, it should show that the 12.2.1 update is available, which you can install by clicking the “Update Now” button.
