Apple issues update to fix keyboard, trackpad bugs in latest 13" Retina MacBook Pros

Apple on Thursday afternoon issued an update for EFI firmware on late 2013 13-inch Retina MacBook Pros, designed to address a problem where the laptop's keyboard and trackpad could freeze.

MacBook Pro EFI Update


The issues surfaced days after the notebooks' release in late October, with users complaining of sporadic keyboard and trackpad freezes that could only be cured with a hard reset. Apple promised that a fix would be incoming a few days later.

According to the release notes, Thursday's update "addresses an issue where the built-in keyboard and Multi-Touch trackpad may become unresponsive." Users can download the update now from the Mac App Store.

AppleInsider reviewed the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display and found it to be a strong performer, particularly with Intel's latest Haswell processors and faster integrated Iris graphics. The new notebook also sports a slightly thinner chassis and lighter weight than last year's model.
