Apple updates

Apple has released software updates for Aperture 2, iPhoto '08 and iPhoto '09, along with a firmware update that is designed to extend the battery life of MacBooks. Owners of Nikon D3X and Epson R-D1x digital cameras will now be able to upload RAW-format images to Apple's photo software. The update also addresses compatibility issues with specific cameras and improves overall stability.

Battery Update 1.4 is claimed to improve the ability of MacBook batteries to hold a charge when the system is shut down or the computer is left unused for lengthy periods of time. Users can navigate to the Apple menu and choose 'About this Mac' to retrieve battery information for their MacBook. The update applies to any device with the name "ASMB016" or "ASMB013" in the serial number, a pack lot code reading "0002" or a battery firmware version of "0110."

To update more than one battery, the system should be shut down and the batteries swapped. Upon restart, the system will update the second battery if it is eligible.

The download for Aperture 2, iPhoto '08 and iPhoto '09 is available directly from Apple's support page and weighs in at 3.8 MB, while Battery Update 1.4 is contained in a 210KB file.
