Users of some ultrawide and super-ultrawide external monitors are experiencing an issue where some monitor resolutions are not available when being used with an Apple Silicon M1 Mac. Apple says a fix is on the way.
When either so-called ultrawide or super-ultrawide displays are connected to the new Macs, macOS Big Sur does not offer the ability to set certain resolutions. While the monitors are built to display a range of resolutions, but those are simply not listed in the System Preferences, Display pane.
“Apple is aware of this issue,” says the company in a new support document, “and resolution is planned for a future macOS update.”
Apple has not confirmed when a fix will be released, saying only that “this document will be updated as more information becomes available.”
