Boot Camp Update for MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010)

Send Article to a Friend

Coming on the heels of its latest revision of the 13-inch MacBook, Apple has released updates for Mid-2010 MacBook users working with either the 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows in Boot Camp. The updates address a spurious warning message that can appear when clicking the brightness tab in the Boot Camp Control Panel, and fix a bug that could silence headphone audio. Installation instructions are available on Apple's Web site. (Free, 1.5 MB)
