Apple has come up with an Airport Client update for its Macbook and Macbook Pro notebooks, addressing an issue with the performance of the devices while using battery power.
Airport is Apple’s trademark local area wireless networking product which is based on IEEE 802.11 standard, prominently known as Wi-Fi. However, in common usage, Airport as well as Airport Extreme can refer to the protocol, the base station, or the expansion card.
The new update is intended for Intel-powered Macintosh computers running Mac OS X v10.5.8 and tackles the issue relating to the computer’s performance while running on battery power. It is only designed for the devices launched between late 2007 and late 2008.
The different iterations of Macbook notebooks that have been included in the recent update include Macbook 13-inch released between late 2007 and late 2008, Macbook 15-inch released early 2008, as well as Macbook Pro 17-inch, launched in the year 2008.
The size of the update is about 1.7MB, and it is only intended for Macbook and Macbook Pros running latest iteration of Leopard, Mac OS X 10.5.8.
Furthermore, it supports a large number of languages including English Deutsche, French, Italiano, Chinese, Korean, and Korean, to name a few.
In addition to this, Apple has also added antiglare display upgrade option to its 15-inch Macbook, a technology which comes bundled with its 17-inch Macbook Pro.
