Apple releases firmware update for new glass trackpads

Apple MacBook Pro

Apple has released a firmware update for an issue affecting its latest MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks. Introduced back in mid-October, the new notebooks feature an innovative multitouch glass trackpad. Instead of relying on hardware buttons, the whole trackpad can act as buttons when you press down on it.
