Apple has made its M1 Mac mini available starting from November 17 this year. And even though the device has managed to impress the users and critics with its performance, it is in no way with out flaws. Now, some users have started to complain that the new machine is giving them lots of grievances with respect to Bluetooth connectivity issues.
The M1 Mac mini can pretty much handle anything thrown it’s way, in terms of productivity tasks. But unfortunately, in terms of connecting to wireless peripherals via Bluetooth, the device is giving issues to its users. According to a YouTuber, Patrick Tomasso, he cannot connect both the Logitech MX Master 3 or his Apple Magic Mouse 2 to the M1 Mac mini wirelessly. Other owners have also been experienced similar issues with the device.
“I am using the Logitech Mx keys keyboard, and MX Master 3 mouse. On the very first boot, it would not recognize the keyboard or mouse as available to pair via Bluetooth. I resorted to a wired keyboard and mouse to get through the setup. After that, I was able to pair both, and they work great. However any time I reboot the machine, I can’t log in because the keyboard and mouse are not connected. Using the wired keyboard lets me log in, and then the Bluetooth keyboard and mouse start working again. I’ve submitted a bug report, but I’m wondering if anyone else has experienced this.”
Well, it is true that a hard reset is always an option to fix things when it comes to Apple devices. but for those unlucky ones who still didn’t get the problem solved have to wait for Apple to release a software update to remedy the issue. However, If it’s a hardware malfunction, then we are looking at a whole new scenario where M1 Mac mini owners will have to visit their Apple store or authorized service outlets. So let’s hope for everyone’s sake that the problem is related to software and will be fixed by the next update.
