Apple Updates Firmware for Intel-based Macs

by Jeff Carlson

Apple released firmware updates [1] for its line of Intel-based Macs last week, addressing Boot Camp, start up, and wake-from-sleep issues. Be sure to follow the directions (worth printing out) when applying the updates; instructions for creating a Firmware Restoration CD [2] are also available. The updates affect all Intel-based Mac models, and are available via Software Update or by direct download: MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.2 [3] (2.7 MB), iMac EFI Firmware Update 1.1 [4] (6.1 MB), MacBook EFI Firmware Update 1.0 [5] (1.6 MB), Mac mini EFI Firmware Update 1.1 [6] (1.6 MB), and Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.1 [7] (1.6 MB).
