Apple offers 27in display updates, Windows Trackpad drivers

updated 06:25 pm EDT, Wed September 22, 2010

Downloads available for 32- and 64-bit systems

Apple has released several support updates, including an LED Cinema Display download for Macs. Windows users can download separate updates that combine software for the new display and the Magic Trackpad. The display update, designed for Apple's latest 27-inch IPS panel, adds an option to the System Preferences pane that allows the display to automatically adjust brightness as the ambient light changes. Users can also configure the sound preferences to use the display for the primary audio output.

The Windows updates, available as separate downloads for 32- or 64-bit systems, provide support for the 27-inch Cinema Display and Magic Trackpad. The Trackpad drivers allow Windows users to take advantage of a variety of gestures, including two-finger scrolling and secondary clicks. The drivers do not support several additional gestures, such as zoom functions and three- or four-finger input, that are still limited to Macs.

All three downloads are now available directly from Apple's Support site, or via Software Update for the Mac update. [Mac display download - 75.8MB] [32-bit Windows download - 7.3MB] [64-bit Windows download - 4.4MB]
