Apple Releases First Software Update for Brand New 12-Inch MacBook

Bluetooth-12-inch-MacBookLess than two hours after announcing the new 12-inch MacBook, which has yet to become available for purchase online, Apple has released the first software update for the notebook.

Apple's website says the Bluetooth update for the 12-inch MacBook (Early 2016) improves compatibility with third-party Bluetooth devices, and is recommended for all users.

The software update is a 157.8MB download and requires OS X El Capitan 10.11.4.

OMG, Apple. This is hilarious! Apple != Quality Control whatsoever.
Can't even buy it online either getting "The page you’re looking for can’t be found". http://www.apple.com/us/shop/go/macbook/select
Steve Jobs wouldn't have accepted this kind of nonsense.
For a company that charges a premium on its products and
services and promotes a brand image of perfection, this is totally unacceptable.


I feel you're making a bit of a mountain out of a molehill here. It's just a software update for goodness' sake.

When launching a website, check your websites before making them live. It's web design 101. Why can't Apple get the simple things right anymore?


If the height of your incredulity is set off by a dead website link that will be shortly fixed, you need to get your priorities right.

That's the last I'm saying on this matter. Simmer down and grow up.

Are you serious with this. It is a Bluetooth update. Stop trolling every thread with this crap.

Mobile Me was ground breaking, a completely new venture.

MobileMe wasn't completely new as it was an updated service built on the foundations of iTools and .Mac.

Guess they had to hold it to keep secret the hardware.

What would be the point of releasing the patch before the new machine was announced?

You can buy it on the Apple Store app on your iPhone. Delivers by April 29 with free delivery, or by April 27 if you want to pay extra.


I wouldn't bother, doelcm; they're looking to moan about problems, not get solutions or workarounds.

Two issues on day of product launch? No, not a mountain but neither a molehill either. What's going on at Cupertino?

What two issues?
1) "The link doesn't work! ZOMG!" - Maybe they just haven't enabled it yet.
2) "Software patch <2 hours after launch! ZOMG!" - The fact it was available that quickly tells us they knew about the issue already. The I'm betting they found out about it after production began, and could not update units already packaged. Show me another company that put out patches that quickly?

As has been said many times before, no company is perfect. Even Apple has issues that slip through now and again. What matters most is how they handle it, and how quickly.

Can't even buy the product either following the link on their website! http://www.apple.com/us/shop/go/macbook/select


Yeah, same for the UK website. Dead link, not exactly the end of the world, they'll sort it in an hour or so. I really don't know why you're so riled up.
