http://images.macrumors.com/article-new/2012/11/NewImage12.pngApple has released a 127.07 MB update (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1609) for all the Mac notebooks introduced in June 2012 -- the new MacBook Air models, as well as the spec-bumped MacBook Pro (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/06/11/apple-updates-macbook-pro-and-macbook-air-models-with-minor-spec-bumps/), and the MacBook Pro 15" with Retina display (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/06/11/apple-introduces-next-generation-macbook-pro-with-15-4-retina-display-starts-at-2199/).

Apple is nonspecific about the exact issues the update fixes, but mentions graphics performance and compatibility with USB devices:
About MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0

This update includes graphics performance and reliability enhancements and improves compatibility with some USB devices.

This update is recommended for all Mac notebooks introduced in June 2012.The update is available via Apple's support website (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1609) or the Mac App Store.

Installing the update also changes the build number of OS X 10.8.2 from 12C60 to 12C3006.

Off-topic a bit, yes, but that's what I did. I dumped my iPad for a MacBook Air, and I haven't even thought about touching the iPad ever since. It's been a few months now. Sure, they're two different device, but for the things that I used my iPad for, the Air handles perfectly, too.

I've noticed an improvement in waking the rMBP from sleep. Before the update, I would sometimes have to wait for roughly 15-20 seconds before the mouse cursor would respond. Since the update, waking the system is much more responsive.

Open GL drivers before update: NVIDIA-8.0.61
Open GL drivers after update: NVIDIA-8.6.22

I wrote down the driver version before the update but it doesn't seem like it's possible that there could be such a drastic change. However I looked back to an old thread where I was posting about this and it was indeed 8.0.61 before this update. Interesting.

Is Safari "snappier", or is that just me (I never though I'd use the Safari is Snappier line).

The choppy year-to-year page turn animation in Calendar is less choppy, but, still not fluid.It seems that scrolling has incrementally improved.

If the wake-up time has improved, that will be much appreciated. There were times where I'd wait for over 30 seconds to see my mouse and text cursor active. If that's fixed, I'm a happy camper.

[EDIT]
Ok, it crashed whenever I had my 15" rmbp connected to an external monitor, I tried disconnecting the monitor, launching it, then reconnecting the monitor, that worked. And now whenever I launch it even with the monitor connected it works...I honestly have no idea why.

Me too. I've also got Mail forgetting passwords, and Calendar having similar issues (and not accepting CalDAV passwords). After I locked the screen (screensaver), the machine wouldn't respond. Also, on first reboot after install, it wouldn't allow any input from keyboard or trackpad. Another reboot fixed that.

Yesterday everything was working fine. :(

Question: Is this just for MaxBooks (Pro) bought in June and later? If so, how can I see if my newly bought MacBook Pro is indeed one of those?

I ask because it came with Lion installed. If it were in fact a new Model shouldn't it have already been Mountain Lion?

I had the same problems. After installing the update it seemed like my keychain was acting up, I couldn't re-install an app I had already purchased from the App Store and Mail.app had problems. I just repaired disk permissions and rebooted and now both of those problems have gone away.

That's less than 1/4 of 1% of the space on a 64GB MBA, and it replaces files, not just adds to them, so I really wouldn't worry about it.

wow this update made a huge difference for me! Before whenever I had loads of windows on the desktop and I used mission control it would lag and stutter like crazy. Same for swiping between spaces and now its nice and smooth.

Not 100% super smooth, but a huuuuuge improvement! Lets hope it stays that way now.

Yeah, i did the same. It updated the nVidia version from 1.3.4 to 8.6.22 also...i manually updated my nVidia driver to the 304 series one so not sure if that was updated in this update also from the 295 series nVIdia driver?

Not sure what is up with the numbering but it seems like it could be a good update.

OpenGL Certification seems the same however.

I ask because it came with Lion installed. If it were in fact a new Model shouldn't it have already been Mountain Lion?

To find out, click on the Apple menu (top left of screen) and select "About This Mac". Click on the "More Info..." button and you should see another window appear. Under the big bold MacBook Pro text, you will see the date of the model and the June 2012 models should say "Mid 2012".

Also, Lion was initially loaded onto these Mid 2012 MacBooks in June because Mountain Lion was only released in late July.

My MacBook Air went from 384 MB graphic memory to 512 MB. Quite annoying since I only have 4GB of ram on the machine. I don't think it is necessary to allocate 512 MB just for the GPU.

I can not see any other differences and did not have any issues with graphics before so I am actually quite upset to see this increase of VRAM.

The 13" rMBP took 768 MB of RAM as VRAM for the same HD 4000 internal gpu but it also has about twice the pixels. I can not understand Apple here. I often run out of RAM and this will only make it even easier. :mad::mad:

Edit: I updated with a file attatched that shows the updated drivers on my machine.

I noticed it, too. First I thought it had always been 512 MB VRAM :D Maybe that was the only way to make animations smoother? Anyway, it shouldn't matter because the system now can take up to 512 MB of RAM, but it doesn't use it all the time.

You're worried about that much of a difference in allocated RAM? Give me a break dude. If you're bumping up against that 4GB wall on your machine all the time, you've got the wrong machine and configuration for your usage case in the first place.

A new name for my MBP: Spec-bumped MBP:p

However mine is snappier than before, even if I switched the GPU to Intel HD4000 (I only have 384mb of VRAM on HD4000). Nice but the YouTube player issue has not been solved.

Also I see a big bump on battery life. (showing 8hrs and 20mins when I am editing this post on Safari, I have never seen this on my 15" MBP before.)

What do you use your MBA for? Gaming? If not this VRAM bump will not break your machine.

My old 13" MBP also had 512mb VRAM for HD3000 and I have never ever freezed due to that.

Warning - this update seems to change the way "safesleep" is handled. If you currently have safesleep disabled in order to free up the drive space required by the sleep image, this will cause it to come back and even setting hibernatemode = 0 won't change it.

Not sure why. The 13" rMBP has this "feature" out of the box but the 2.0 update has been reported to have the same effect on the earlier Ivy Bridge macbooks.

For people concerned with the sleepimage file, it seems to be easily fixable.

MAKE SURE YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU'RE DOING!

OK, basically you need to create a symbolic link to nowhere in the Terminal:

cd /var/vm
sudo rm sleepimage
sudo ln -s /dev/null sleepimage

That's all.

Do not install this update if you use Skype, now as soon as I sign in it crashes....

[EDIT]
Ok, it crashed whenever I had my 15" rmbp connected to an external monitor, I tried disconnecting the monitor, launching it, then reconnecting the monitor, that worked. And now whenever I launch it even with the monitor connected it works...I honestly have no idea why.

[EDIT]
Not using Skype but since upgrade my external monitor no longer works. Erratic behaviour. With lid closed external monitor worked, when open both screens black with just a cursor. Reboot fixed it for about an hour then back to unusable.

MBPr seems to work ok with external monitor disconnected. Up until thIs update all seemed good. Now unusable with external monitor.

Have Skype loaded but not used. Have not checked mail etc.

You're worried about that much of a difference in allocated RAM? Give me a break dude. If you're bumping up against that 4GB wall on your machine all the time, you've got the wrong machine and configuration for your usage case in the first place.

lol....

Well, no I do not think so. I am very happy about the air and I have other machines too, this is the machine I bring with me everyday so it is important for me. I go by train for hours almost every day. They don´t come with 8GB in store and I did not have time for a BTO at the time.

It is not the biggest difference that they adjusted the amount of allocated VRAM, but it IS a difference and I don't see why. It is a ultra portable computer and it doesnt need 512 MB for the GPU right?

Also, what I noted after a few reboots is that the only amount of free ram is about 1,6GB immediately after a start. It is far less than before. But that might be temporary.

I do alot of different things on my machine but playing games is not one of them. I do quite alot of graphic processing on it but it has always worked great, even with my 27" apple led display connected..

Sheesh, my 13" rMBP says 768MB video memory-- and I have fewer pixels to push than a 15" retina which has 512MB.

However, since that's shared system memory, I don't believe it actually *uses* that unless it's needed. That number just represents the max amount that can be allocated. So unless you're running 2 external 27" monitors it shouldn't be sucking up too much system memory.

I noticed this issue too but not on all rBPs. My dad's machine kept waking in a second while mine was taking maybe 30 seconds. I'll keep an eye on my machine over the weekend and see if it fixed this issue.

My guess is that this is caused by the machine going into standby mode: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4392

The machine will write the contents of RAM to the SSD after about an hour of sleep on battery. I have yet to apply the update, but perhaps it changed this behavior.

The long wake times were driving me crazy, so my solution was to change the timeout from the default 70 minutes to 12 hours using pmset. I have not tried this with the update, so try this at your own risk. I assume no responsibility whatsoever if this screws up your computer, don’t do this if you don’t know how to use Terminal, please be careful, etc. etc.

The relevant commands are:
sudo pmset -b standbydelay 43200
sudo pmset -c standbydelay 43200

Replace 43200 with your preferred standby delay, in seconds. The default value is 4200.

And to check the current settings, this ought to work:
pmset -g custom | grep standbydelay

I’m guessing that resetting the PRAM resets these values.

Nice that they bumped up the possible Gfx memory on the Air. It does mean that certain programs that might have issues with the gfx memory can now run without a hitch. Not necessarily gaming in general, but for a particular gfx memory hungry game called Might & Magic Heroes 6. (Which would work before this update, but would work much better with this update)

I've got the same issue. There's also problems with coming out of sleep, keychain access issues, and none of my external drives can be unmounted.

Damn,
previously I have been enjoying the game XCOM:EnemyUnknown on my 15" RetinaMacBookPro running inside Windows8 with Parallels 8. Today however, whenever I try and run the game the virtual machine crashes (not just a blue screen etc, but the VM vanishes and Parallels throws up a crash message).

Now what is different since the last time it worked a few days ago are two things:
- XCOM patch update (~7th November) which installed after my last game
- This RetinaMacBookPro Graphics Update 2.0, which installed yesterday

I'm guessing the rMBP graphics update is the cause here, currently redownloading the 10.8.2 Combo updater to try and rollback the drivers while I wait for Parallels to do an update so I can get back to killing aliens.

using gfxCardStatus, if I force the rMBP to stay on the integrated video card, the crash does not occur. So it is definitely related to the discrete video card. its not quite as smooth of course, but is playable on low settings.

So for my (very) short subjective review, unfortunately I have no stats to back this up;

OS GUI does generally seem a tad more responsive.
Safari visual glitches mostly resolved - an SMC reset seems to help that however for a short while.
Able to run Portal,TF2,HL2 at full retina resolution with max settings at a smooth frame-rate versus being limited to around 1920 before on max settings.


Very happy so far, just wish Apple would do something to smooth Safari up a bit...

To find out, click on the Apple menu (top left of screen) and select "About This Mac". Click on the "More Info..." button and you should see another window appear. Under the big bold MacBook Pro text, you will see the date of the model and the June 2012 models should say "Mid 2012".

Also, Lion was initially loaded onto these Mid 2012 MacBooks in June because Mountain Lion was only released in late July.

Thanks, I'll check it later. I kind of figured the Lion Install would be because Mountain Lion wasn't released earlier. Now I know for sure. Thanks.

The choppy year-to-year page turn animation in Calendar is less choppy, but, still not fluid.It seems that scrolling has incrementally improved.

If the wake-up time has improved, that will be much appreciated. There were times where I'd wait for over 30 seconds to see my mouse and text cursor active. If that's fixed, I'm a happy camper.

Wake time improved here on rMBP, now cursor is instant.

Wake from sleep (after sleeping for an hour or more) now takes a solid 10 seconds, and I consistently see >2GBs of Swap used after waking whereas before my Swap usage would have been at 0. I've set hibernatemode to 0 and sym-linked the sleepimage file to /dev/null, then reset my SMC. It seems to have helped for a few days, but the issue is back (possibly after a restart).

Also, I've noticed that the menus on the right side of the menu bar (clock, battery, etc) will sometimes open when I simply mouse over them—no click required. Odd issue, but it's only started happening since this Update.

Finally, battery life seems to have gone down. Whereas before I would see 8–10 hours of usage on a charge, I'm now getting doing the same things 6–7.

This update is a disaster!!

I've installed it on rMBP and it simply stopped booting. All I've seen was an Apple logo and then restart... and again...

I went to the store immediately (thankfully I've got them on the other side of the street where my office is) but they didn't know the case and told me I could leave the computer for diagnosis for 2 days - so I declined. All they did was basic diagnostics (it showed some bluetooth-related problems?!?) and SMC/PRAM reset.

I took it home to recover from image on USB drive but before I did I decided to give "safe mode" a try. And surprise! - it booted. And something must got fixed then because it is booting normally know.

But it was the not end of problems unfortunately. Actually I've experienced:

- applications asking for keychain access all of sudden
- it refused to wake from sleep once (it just displayed mouse cursor for a sec and back off)
- once it disallowed me to move/copy any file ("operation not permitted") until I restarted

So I am still considering restoring from image (I've got 10.8.2 version prior to "supplemental update" there) and wait for "2.1" update... :/

I wonder if this patch fixes the problems with games, which makes you having to reset your SMC.
At least not out of the box. Got a new rMBP (with 10.8 pre-installed) and put all available updates on it (including that EFI 2.0 update). Was disappointed by low fps-rate in WoW, found threads about the issue and could cure the problem by resetting SMC - after the patch was already installed.

Not sure though whether it was a one-time reset that was necessary after the update or whether the update did _not_ fix the issue. Will test this today or tomorrow...

Which games were causing that?
Probably most games that are a little more demanding than Minesweeper...

Image (http://cdn.macrumors.com/article-new/2012/11/NewImage12.png)Apple has released a 127.07 MB update (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1609) for all the Mac notebooks introduced in June 2012 -- the new MacBook Air models, as well as the spec-bumped MacBook Pro (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/06/11/apple-updates-macbook-pro-and-macbook-air-models-with-minor-spec-bumps/), and the MacBook Pro 15" with Retina display (http://www.macrumors.com/2012/06/11/apple-introduces-next-generation-macbook-pro-with-15-4-retina-display-starts-at-2199/).

Apple is nonspecific about the exact issues the update fixes, but mentions graphics performance and compatibility with USB devices:
The update is available via Apple's support website (http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1609) or the Mac App Store.

Installing the update also changes the build number of OS X 10.8.2 from 12C60 to 12C3006.

Why, if these are working systems, would you update as soon as any patch is released (unless it is an essential security fix)?

It is this same mentality you see with users clicking on yes on website pop ups and then they cry when they get a virus.

Maybe, if you rely on your system you wait a few days or weeks prior to updating to ensure that you will not be buggering up your system.

Remember that although Apple test these updates they, in all likely hood will not be testing it on a system running half of the applications that you will be running at home.

Mine is exactly the same (same model too).

Previously, it would simply 'sleep', even overnight, and make in a few seconds.

Now since this update, it seems to hibernate after an hour or so, and then takes up to a minute to fully 'resume' once the lid is opened. I'm not sure why this has changed, or if it is possible to revert to the previous behaviour?

Previously, it would simply 'sleep', even overnight, and make in a few seconds.

Now since this update, it seems to hibernate after an hour or so, and then takes up to a minute to fully 'resume' once the lid is opened. I'm not sure why this has changed, or if it is possible to revert to the previous behaviour?

My rMBP has been doing that since I bought it in July (my previous 13" MBP always came out of sleep immediately, however long it was in sleep mode), but the latest update has prolonged it after a deep sleep. Takes up to a minute to be able to log back in.

Very, very strangely, I've come to my cMBP this afternoon (it has been 'asleep' all day) and on opening the lid, it's jumped back in to life within 2-3 seconds, like it always used to!

I absolutely love these random "puzzles"!

My rMBP seems to work great after the update. In fact, the occasional sluggish GUI graphics performance that I had previously noticed seems to be fixed, unless it's because I am now running everything in "best for retina" mode rather than trying to make my desktop larger (maybe that has something to do with it running smoother). I might switch back to the larger desktop only when I am programming because Xcode loves lots of desktop real estate.

Has anyone with 2 connected Cinema displays noticed that they are switched after applying this update? After rebooting they came back reversed and I had to physically swap the two DisplayPort cables to get it back to how it was.

At least not out of the box. Got a new rMBP (with 10.8 pre-installed) and put all available updates on it (including that EFI 2.0 update). Was disappointed by low fps-rate in WoW, found threads about the issue and could cure the problem by resetting SMC - after the patch was already installed.

Not sure though whether it was a one-time reset that was necessary after the update or whether the update did _not_ fix the issue. Will test this today or tomorrow...


Probably most games that are a little more demanding than Minesweeper...

Thanks for the heads up/effort.

I updated two days ago. I have had nothing but problems since the update. I did not know this was a new update. Normally I put them off for a few months until the kinks are worked out.


Macbook Pro 15" Mid 2012

- Safari crashes repeatedly. Unable to use reader.
- Mail App Crashes repeatedly. Mailboxes go offline refuse to go back online. Requests login password
- Mac OS X requests keychain login password
- Wifi suddenly disconnects and keeps searching. Attempts to turn off wifi causes system preferences to crash. Only solution is to reboot laptop to be able to connect to wifi
- External hard drive via USB has dropped several times

Overall system is now unstable.

Don't know this would be helpful for cMBP users or not, but I found unchecking the "Put hard disks to sleep when possible" function in Energy Saver will avoid the machine going into "deep sleep", especially for cMBP running on SSD.

After unchecking this my cMBP wakes from sleep in just seconds of time, no matter it has slept for 8 hours or so.

Mine is exactly the same (same model too).

Previously, it would simply 'sleep', even overnight, and make in a few seconds.

Now since this update, it seems to hibernate after an hour or so, and then takes up to a minute to fully 'resume' once the lid is opened. I'm not sure why this has changed, or if it is possible to revert to the previous behaviour?

You can push the time after wich it goes into standby to a higher value. You need to calculate the value expressed in seconds.

sudo pmset -a standbydelay <time in seconds>

Example to only go into standby mode after 10 hours:

sudo pmset -a standbydelay 36000

Ive just got my rMBP back from apple today and was wanting to test out this update to see if it reduced the lag as some people are saying it does.

It now looks like im out of luck unless I can get the file from somewhere else?

You're not out of luck .. Apple pulled the update. Because it's broken. Hold onto your stable OSX install for now until a new STABLE update comes out. Scroll above this post to calisurfboy's LIST of issues (not to mention a quick google).. You JUST got your Mac back, unless you have an unhealthy obsession with the Genius Bar, I'd avoid the update.. Which even Apple is trying to stop lol. Is it worth more headaches to solve a few frames dropped here or there on an otherwise stable machine? (Sorry I'm going off the deep end, but it utterly baffled my mind that you'd still want to update after the last 7 pages of this thread).

Like I said in another post.. I edit video day in and out with this macbook .. You couldn't pay me to do the update. Especially with the alleged throttling now happening with that update (see link below).

Updated my rMBP, nothing but grief, every time I reboot have to reset SMC to see my USB drives again :mad:

Luckily did not update my partners rMBP, now that would have caused domestic pain.

I think neither because it seems to be the 10.8.2 supplemental 2.0 you are referring to. That is a different update than the one discussed here. Check out the topic for the supplemental update: Apple Releases OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update 2.0 (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1493338).

I updated my 15" retina a week or so ago. It's been a horrible update. I've had the keychain problems, as well as severe GPU throttling (I don't have many tasks CPU-bound, so I haven't been able to check that).

If you've downloaded the update and have been thinking of applying it - don't.

The updated 13" MBP w/Retina sure seems like a viable update to me. With its slimmer profile, laminated less reflective display and weight reduction are fairly significant in my view. Fully configured, or nearly fully configured is about the only way I would/may go. Not sure if the SSD 750 upgrade is worth the $500.

Macbook Pro 2.0 2.0 just appeared as an available download. Not sure if its a fix. But too scared to download seeing all these previous problems the one in November caused.

I just downloaded the update and just at the end after using up 130 Megabytes of my limited satellite allowance I received an error message and have to start all over. This is not the first time this has happened. I am so tired of Apples slow error prone servers.

I downloaded the update for my 15" rMBP last week and I haven't had any problems with throttling, graphics slow downs or anything else like that. I also haven't had to reset my SMC or PRAM since the update.

I've got the 2.6Ghz 16GB rMBP and I'm running Windows 8 on bootcamp and via Parallels 8. I've been playing The Witcher 2, Deus Ex and Skyrim with no issues whatsoever.

No issues for me with a mid-2012 Air and mid-2012 15" non-retina MBP. Seems solid.
