If you have a brand spanking new Mac Pro, Apple has released a new firmware update that will help it stay quiet and not sound like the jet engine that it may physically resemble.
Recommended for all late 2013 Mac Pros, the Mac Pro SMC Firmware Update 2.0 allows the Mac Pro to enter Power Nap without running the Mac Pro’s fan for most Power Nap activities.
The update also addresses a rare issue where a low-speed USB device may not be detected at boot.
If you’ve already dropped a few grand on a Mac Pro, the good news is the update’s free. You can grab it from the link below.
