Public beta testers can download ‌macOS Big Sur‌ 11.2 from the Software Update section of the System Preferences app after installing the proper profile from Apple's beta software website.

There's no word just yet on what's included in ‌‌macOS Big Sur‌‌ 11.2, but it likely includes performance improvements, security updates, and fixes for bugs that weren't able to be addressed in the release version of ‌‌‌macOS Big Sur‌. No new features or changes were found in the developer version.

I hope it fixes WIFI + Bluetooth disconnect and screen resolution bug when waking from sleep on M1 Macs. If it doesn't I am tempted to return my MacBook, it's getting quite annoying!

Has anyone installed this? Whats your impression?

I am using a MBP M1 and the booting is now quicker, the localisation bug at logon still exists. Bluetooth seems more stable but maybe driver issues with Wacom. It took around 20 mins to install for me. Will be doing some photo editing tomorrow so will have a better idea

I hope that the LG 34WK95U 5K Display will allow better scaled resolutions with this update. It's very annoying to work on the current options
