Apple wireless-input Bluetooth update

Apple has launched a Bluetooth Firmware updater because of its Wireless Mouse and keyboard.

Version 1..2 provides up-to-date firmware for DLink USB Adapters revision B2 or later, and Apple Bluetooth internal modules on PowerBooks and PowerMacs.

Apple claims the firmware update: improves connectivity between your computer and also the Apple Wireless Mouse and keyboard increases the update-installation process allows better performance when waking the pc from sleep and supports additional key instructions during startup.

The updater isn’t based on every other Bluetooth modules and Apple warns that “by using this firmware update can make your Bluetooth module incompatible with Home windows based systems”.

Apple also caution PowerBook customers to update the firmware only if blocked into an AC adaptor.

The updater requires Mac OS X 10.2.6 or later, a Apple Internal Bluetooth module or perhaps a D-Link USB Bluetooth Adapter (DBT-120, rev. B2 or later), and OS X Bluetooth 1.3 client software.
