Apple has released MacBook Air (Mid 2013) Software Update 1.0 for the latest generation of the MacBook Air. The biggest news is that it reportedly addresses the Wi-Fi connectivity issue reported by early adopters (see “New MacBook Air Owners Complaining of Wi-Fi Issues,” 21 June 2013). It also corrects a screen flicker issue when using Adobe Photoshop and an issue that caused audio volume fluctuation during video playback. (Free, 3.35 MB)
