Software fix for MacBook trackpads en route

updated 11:10 am EST, Wed November 5, 2008

MacBook trackpad fix soon

Problems with the buttonless trackpads on the latest MacBooks and MacBook Pros should be solvable via software update, Apple is said to have stated. A variety of users have been complaining that while they can feel and hear their trackpads click, the pads will occasionally fail to register the action through Mac OS X. This is not a fundamental hardware flaw, an exchange with Apple's CEO is said to have revealed.

In response to a fresh complaint from a customer, Steve Jobs is said to have issued a terse reply via e-mail, simply reading "Software fix coming soon." Jobs does not reply to many messages from the public, but is known to occasionally offer quick answers when convenient. The new message refers specifically to an issue with the MacBook Pro, but because of similar hardware it is believed that a patch would affect all of the new MacBooks.
