Is your shiny new MacBook Air occasionally losing Wi-Fi connectivity for no apparent reason? Is its screen flickering when you use Adobe's Photoshop software? Then you'll be particularly happy about a software update issued by Apple.
The update is aimed at MacBook Air models from mid 2013 — the newest ones. Apple describes it as fixing "an issue that in rare instances may cause an intermittent loss in wireless connectivity, an issue with Adobe Photoshop which may cause occasional screen flickering, and an issue which may cause audio volume to fluctuate during video playback."
9to5 Mac's Mark Gurman reports that the Wi-Fi issue addressed in this update has been plaguing "a notable amount of users" since the new MacBook Air's release and that Apple had even replaced several customers' laptops with new units while the issue was originally investigated.
