Big Sur Bricking Older MacBook Pros

I was wondering if we were going to have something like this happen with the Big Sur upgrade. Apparently, several 2013 and 2014 MacBook Pro 13” owners had their machines bricked when they installed macOS Big Sur. This has been reported to Apple. If you are one of these people or know someone with one of these machines, then it would be wise to hold off installing Big Sur at this time.
