Apple mid-2013 MacBook gets Wi-Fi connection fix
Firm also plugs flickering screen problem when using Photoshop.
Apple has released a fix for its mid2013 MacBook Air range to tackle three problems including a flickering screen bug, volume inconsistencies and Wi-Fi connectivity issues.
"This update fixes 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," the firm said in the release notes.
Users began to experience the flickering screen when the brush tool was set to over 100px in Photoshop, and it was suggested the issue was related to either a driver or the GPU.
Meanwhile, the Wi-Fi connection issue appears to be more widespread than Apple is making out. Several hundred users have taken to the Apple forum to share their problems and the thread has been viewed over 86,000 times.
Some users report that Wi-Fi drops out after a few minutes of connection and they need to restart their machine to fix the problems. Others report the signal still shows full strength but there is no connection.
This network issue appears to be related to the use of the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, which aims to boost connection speeds and bandwidth.
