Though the Mac Pro hasn’t even been available to the public for 24 hours, Apple has already released an update for the machine.

Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update 2.0

Though Apple's webpage states that the firmware update is for the late-2013 Mac Pro, the page had an image of the old Mac Pro.

Mac Pro EFI Firmware Update v2.0 is recommended for late-2013 Mac Pro models. According to Apple, the update “improves system reliability during reboot, resolves an issue with memory self-test, and improves graphics power management when using Boot Camp.”

Curiously, at the time of this writing, the webpage for the update show a picture of the old Mac Pro, though the page clearly states “Mac Pro (Late 2013).” Also, the system requirement lists “MacPro6,1” as the applicable Mac model; that’s the model number of the new Mac Pro.

Owners of the new Mac Pro can install the update through Software Update, or it can be downloaded though Apple’s support site. Always back up your data before installing the update.
