2013 MacBook Air Problems? Apple Fixes the Lot [u]
New products invariably exhibit some problems and the 2013 MacBook Air is no exception — intermittent wi-fi, Photoshop flickering and audio volume fluctuations. What is a little unusual is that Apple has issued an update that nips all three issues, one hopes, in the bud.
• MacBook Air (Mid 2013) Software Update 1.0 (download)
— Fixes an issue that in rare instances may cause an intermittent loss in wireless connectivity
— Fixes issue the dreaded and well documented Adobe Photoshop flickering issue
— Fixes issue which may cause audio volume to fluctuate during video playback
For what it’s worth, developer seeds of OS X 10.8.5 include a fix for the Photoshop flickering issue in the 2013 MacBook Air.
That said, installation of the MacBook Air (Mid 2013) Software Update 1.0 requires OS X 10.8.4 build version 12E3067. So, if you’re running OS X Mavericks beta, you might want to pass on this patch.
[u] Ars Technica reports that Software Update 1.0 doesn’t fully address 802.11ac wi-fi issues.
