Apple on Thursday put out a small software update to users of its latest 2013 MacBook Airs, one that promises to fix a trio of issues that affected some users:

This update fixes an issue that in rare instances may cause an intermittent loss in wireless connectivity, an issue with Adobe Photoshop which may cause occasional screen flickering, and an issue which may cause audio volume to fluctuate during video playback.

It's unclear how many users were affected by these issues, and whether they occurred only in specific models.

Apple released new MacBook Air hardware during its annual developers conference last month. The new models boast better battery life and speedier solid-state drives than previous iterations, along with next-generation 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

The small, 3.35MB update can be downloaded directly from Apple, or found in the software update tool inside the Mac App Store.
