Last Updated: Fri, Dec 20, 2013 08:30 hrs

Apple has reportedly issued an EFI firmware update for the recently launched Mac Pro, fixing some hardware bugs that were identified since its release.

The latest Mac Pro hit the stores on Thursday and the tech giant found some initial hardware bugs and the update aims to improve the system's reliability during boot.

According to Cnet, the EFI firmware update addresses a problem with the built-in memory self-test that occurs on startup and also improves graphics power handling when using Windows in Boot Camp.

The latest Mac Pro has a radical design which is in contrast with the old aluminum chassis for a rounded and minute form that relies on Thunderbolt connectivity for expansion rather than internal PCI-express slots.

The report said that the update has been made available through Software Update for Mac Pro systems, and new users would be able to see the patch immediately available to install.

Users can also download and run the patch manually from Apple's support page, the report added. (ANI)
