    Apple's new 12" MacBook gets day-one software update for Bluetooth compatibility




    Just moments after the new 12-inch MacBook with Retina display was announced, Apple issued a software update for the refreshed notebook, addressing compatbility with third-party Bluetooth devices.

    The Bluetooth update for early 2016 MacBook is now available to download direct from Apple. Apple says it improves compatibility with third-party Bluetooth accessories, and it is recommended that all users install.

    The update requires an early 2016 MacBook running OS X El Capitan 10.11.4 or later. It's a 157.8-megabyte download.

    The new 12-inch MacBook features Intel's latest Skylake mobile processors, along with improved graphics and faster flash storage. Apple has also begun selling a rose gold model, and boosted battery life by an hour.

    The 12-inch MacBook features Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, as well as 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

    The base configuration with a 1.1-gigahertz dual-core Intel Core m3 processor, 8 gigabytes of RAM and 256 gigabytes of flash storage starts at $1,299. The new MacBooks are available to purchase starting today through Apple's website, and will be available to order at Apple Authorized Resellers and Apple's own retail stores beginning Wednesday.

    Apple's New 12-Inch MacBook Now Widely Available for Store Pickup




    Following the launch of the new 12-inch Retina MacBook earlier this week, Apple Stores in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, U.K. and other countries have begun receiving limited stock of the notebook to set up as display models and to fulfill in-store purchases.

    Apple today reenabled its web-based Personal Pickup tool for the 12-inch MacBook, and the availability checker shows that select models are currently in stock at select Apple Stores in or near major U.S. cities, including Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Antonio, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington D.C.

    Outside of the U.S., the 12-inch MacBook is also available in or within the surrounding metropolitan area of a number of major international cities, including Adelaide, Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Brisbane, Hamburg, Ottawa, London, Madrid, Milan, Montréal, Munich, Naples, Paris, Perth, Rome, Sydney, Toronto, and Vancouver. Many other locations offer the notebook on a ship-to-store basis.

    Due to limited per-store availability of the 12-inch MacBook during launch week, it is highly recommended that prospective buyers call their local store ahead of time to confirm in-store stock. A crowdsourced list of Apple Stores with new 12-inch MacBook stock is also available in the MacRumors discussion forums.
