Apple on Monday released a new version of their Bluetooth driver software. It appears as v1.3.3 for Mac for Jaguar users and as 1.4.1 for Panther users.
Approximately 2.0MB in size, the download is available through the Software Update system preference pane.
“Bluetooth 1.3.3 for Mac OS X provides enhanced stability for Bluetooth connections. This release also improves performance with human interface devices (HID) including enhancements to wake from sleep,” said Apple.
Bluetooth is a personal area networking (PAN) technology that enables electronic devices to communicate with each other over short distances. It’s become a way for the Mac to communicate with devices like mobile phones and PDAs. First introduced with Apple’s release of Jaguar, Bluetooth is now integrated on several Mac models. It’s also available to other Macs through the use of USB-based Bluetooth networking peripherals.
