Apple outs SMC update for Macbook Pro systems

Apple has posted a new update for their MacBook Pro users, which resolves an unexpected shutdown issue

Apple has recently released an update for their latest range of their MacBook Pro Systems. This update actually resolved the issue of the systems which may cause unexpected shutdown under heavy workload if the battery is at low level while running under wall power.

However, Apple has not mentioned the specific version where this update is applicable but it will install only on those models where it applies. The size of this upload is small as 730KB and is available on their update web page. They have also mentioned that it requires a Mac OS X 10.6.8 or OS X 110.7.2 for installing the update.

It is also mentioned on their site as the update is to be installed while connecting the system to the power source or the system need to have at least 25 percent of charge left. After installing the update the computer will restart with a gray screen along with a status bar to indicate the progress of the update.

Please go through their other instructions carefully before updating, although it doesn’t seem to be a tough job.
