I'm going to put what is seemingly to be a growing group of MacBook Pro 2021 owners.... Is the black screen during boot up / user login gone with this update?

? Please say yes

Fix them bugs. For me, I'd love Apple to finally fix the port management bug(s) that causes "unexpected ejections" of select- but not all- hardware... that doesn't do that on any other Mac running macOS before Big Sur using same cable, firmware, enclosure, drives, etc.

I sooooooo miss "just works" Apple and hope the big announcement at WWDC is "another Snow Leopard year (or even TWO if needed) focused on bug fixes & optimizations." It's beyond time for that kind of focus again.

How many betas for this considering that Mac OS 14 beta is less than 2 months away now..
4 with a RC if trying to wrap up first week May. But they will still continue MacOS betas with other cycles because OS 14 doesn't ship to end of Sept/early Oct.

I don't understand why MacRumors continues to post the same "Beta Update" article with the "There is no word yet on what's included in macOS XXXXXX, but we'll update this article if anything new is discovered." line.

Apple lists what's included in all the releases on the macOS Release Notes ('https://developer.apple.com/documentation/macos-release-notes') Developer page, which is publicly accessible.
