And as (Patrick Tommaso) – a filmmaker and cameraman with a YouTube channel – noted, the problems range from interrupted connections to peripheral devices to complete connection failures.

Mac Mini, I love you.. but you’re bringing me down.
I’m going crazy trying to figure out the bluetooth issues with this machine. I thought maybe a few of us had an isolated issue but forums/reddit are popping up now all over.
Let’s talk about it.https://t.co/PAWlh1FRkN

On Twitter, he highlighted that there are communication problems with his Mac mini, which has an M1 chip, and referred to posts in a forum that reflect his concerns. He also posted a video detailing the difficulties of connecting via Bluetooth technology.
Tommaso said in his tweet: “I am almost losing my mind trying to figure out the bluetooth problems with this device. I thought maybe a few of us had this problem, but now the forums have shown that it is everywhere. ”
On the popular Reddit site, a number of owners of M1 Mac computers complained that Apple’s or other third-party companies’ peripherals, including: mice, keyboard, and headphones, suffered from intermittent connectivity. The list of affected devices includes Apple’s AirPods itself.
The problem appears to be in Apple’s hardware, or the new macOS Big Sur operating system, where users were able to successfully connect Logitech accessories using the Logitech’s Unifying Receiver Bluetooth electronic switch. A Reddit user contacted Apple to replace his Mac mini, but the replacement device suffered the same problem.
It is noteworthy that this is not the first time that Apple suffers from Bluetooth problems, in 2014, users complained about the slow performance with the Magic Mouse, the Magic Trackpad, the wireless keyboard from Apple, in addition to the wireless accessories from third parties, after Update to OS X Yosemite.
It is unclear how many MacBook Air, MacBook Pro and Mac mini units are currently affected, and Apple has not officially confirmed the problem yet.
