Apple has released a knowledgbase article outlining a Boot Camp update for the 2010 13-inch MacBook Pro. The update is for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of windows, and addresses a problem where the Boot Camp Control Panel would display warnings when changing the display brightness, as well as problems with no audio for headphones.

The 2010 MacBook Pro models were released in mid-April, and since then there have not been any Boot Camp updates so this is the first mention of one for these machines.

The update is available through Apple's software update utility in Windows, but is also available at the following download pages:

  1. Boot Camp Update for MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010) (Windows 64 bit)
  2. Boot Camp Update for MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010) (Windows 32 bit)

When you install the update it should show the Boot Camp build number as 2354 when you select "About Boot Camp" when clicking the Boot Camp tool in the Windows task bar.
