    Apple has a released a new firmware update -- iMac SMC Firmware Update 1.1 -- for the new iMacs released in September.

    Simultaneously, Apple also released a supplemental update for OS X 10.8.5.
    They aren't the first updates for the new iMacs -- when they were first released, Apple released an EFI update to address Boot Camp installation issues.

    iMac SMC Firmware Update 1.1 and iMac 10.8.5 Supplemental Update 1.0 are available for download through Apple's support website or through the Mac App Store's software update mechanism.

    Way to go Apple for producing updates to an old OS even when they made a new OS.

    On a side note, this new push notification thing is great! First comment :D

    My 2013 27" with the Fusion Drive applied the firmware update, despite the description saying "recommended for iMac with flash-only storage." Not sure if it'll affect mine or not, but either way, good deal. :)

    It'd be nice if they'd push a fix for mavericks that makes the scrollviews not jitter.

    I applied the update to my late 2013 27" iMac. Now the external hard drives keep unmounting randomly. Turned off sleep, turned off nap. Hard drives unmount while awake and using computer. Pissing me off.

    Well I updated this and didnt notice a single difference. Oh well. At least I feel like something was refreshed and refined. :)

    I don't have a imac but was able to get the build number by opening the file SystemVersion.plist in the installer and it said it is 12F2029
