Apple has released a FaceTime Camera Driver Update for all 2015 MacBook, MacBook Air and MacBook Pro notebooks that improves FaceTime camera compatibility with Windows. Apple recommends that all. UPDATE: July 12, 2018, 2:56 p.m. EDT: Apple appears to have moved the 2015 Macbook Pro to the Apple store clearance page. This may be your last chance to snag a brand new one, so get them while. MacBook (2015 or later) MacBook Air (2013 or later) MacBook Pro (Late 2013 or later) Mac mini (2014 or later) iMac (2014 or later) iMac Pro (2017 or later) Mac Pro (2013 or later) To see which model you have, click the Apple icon in your menu bar and choose About This Mac. Learn more about which models are compatible. Jan 07, 2017 A MacBook Pro 15' Mid-2012 came with Lion 10.7.3, and that is the OLDEST operating system version it will run. This Mac can run Sierra. And unless you have previously downloaded a copy of an older operating system, then Sierra is the next upgrade available to you.
Apple has been rather quick to support the latest version of Windows with its Boot Camp software. Boot Camp has been allowing Intel-based Mac owners to install Windows on their machines since 2006. Now Boot Camp 6 has been released to allow supported Macs, running OS X Yosemite, to install or update to Windows 10 (64-bit only).
Just like PC users, Mac Boot Camp users with installs of a genuine qualifying (Windows 7 or newer) Windows OS can upgrade to Windows 10 for free. A guide to installing Windows 10 using Boot Camp is now available on the Apple support website. The following computers, when/if updated to OS X Yosemite, support Windows 10:
Browsing the above list, it looks to cover any Apple Mac computer launched from 2012 onwards.
Boot Camp users have the option to install Windows 10 afresh or perform an update. This time around only 64-bit Windows 10 is supported, so there are implications to those wishing to upgrade from a previous 32-bit Windows install – you can't do it, you will have to start from scratch. Apple has provided a full walkthrough of the procedure for Boot Camp Windows users, whatever the case.
Once you get Windows 10 running on your Mac you might be happy to know that the following ports/peripherals are all supported:
If there are any wrinkles and/or difficulties with your installation Apple suggests you use its Boot Camp support software.
Bought a new MacBook Pro recently? There might be a firmware update waiting for you.
Apple on Wednesday released the MacBook Pro Flash Storage Firmware Update 1.0, which, according to Apple’s website, is for mid-2015 MacBook Pro models. The website also sates that the firmware update fixes an issue that “may cause data corruption.”
In case you’re wondering, about the “mid-2015” part: When Apple releases new Macs, it uses identifies when the model was released with “early-,” “mid-,” or “late-,” labels. The 15-inch MacBook Pro currently for sale by Apple is labeled mid-2015. So if you have a MacBook Pro from mid-2014, you do not need to install the firmware update.
The release period label isn’t marked on the MacBook Pro product box or on the MacBook Pro itself. But you can find it if you look up About This Mac.
The 1.9MB update is available for download from Apple’s website.
