Apple releases fixes for 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks Gmail and iBooks for Mac 1.0.1
Last month Apple released the 13-inch Retina MacBook Pro, however there were some issues with the computer keyboard and track- pad not responding. The MacBook Pro Retina EFI Update 1.3 just arrived in the Mac App Store via Apple Support. ‘This update is recommended for MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, late 2013) models. This update addresses an issue where the built-in keyboard and Multi-Touch track-pad may become unresponsive.’ You can download the fix HERE.
Another solution that came along with the MacBook Pro Retina EFI Update 1.3 is the Mail Update for Mavericks to fix the issues, most of the Mail app users have been complaining recently. ‘Mail Update for Mavericks includes improvements to general stability and compatibility with Gmail, including the following: Fixes an issue that prevents deleting, moving, and archiving messages for users with custom Gmail settings. Addresses an issue that may cause unread counts to be inaccurate. Includes additional fixes that improve the compatibility and stability of Mail.’ You can download the fix from the Apple Support HERE.
In order to install the fix, read the following tutorial:
- You should back up your system before installation. To do this you can use Time Machine.
- You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system software modiﬁcations installed, or if you’ve modiﬁed the operating system through other means.
- Choose Apple menu () > Software Update to check for the latest Apple software via the Mac App Store, including this update. Other software updates available for your computer may appear, which you should install. Note that an update’s size may vary from computer to computer when installed using Software Update. Also, some updates must be installed prior to others. Use Software Update until it reports “No Updates Available”.
- Do not interrupt the installation process once you have started to update your system.
As Apple promised, the iBooks update also came fast, only a day after it was announced. Now OS X Mavericks users can have the 14 MB fix that’s centred on the performance and stability as many people reported to keep downloading books which they can’t open to read afterwards, and other less problematic bugs.
