Shortly after the launch of the new 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display, some users were complaining about issues related to the accuracy of the laptop’s keyboard and trackpads; specifically, many users reported that both components ultimately became unresponsive at times. Apple promised to deliver a software patch, in addition to one that fixed graphics card bugs on the 15-inch model, and today both patches are now live, according to 9to5Mac.

“This update is recommended for MacBook Pro (Retina, 13-inch, late 2013) models,” Apple said. “This update addresses an issue where the built-in keyboard and Multi-Touch trackpad may become unresponsive.” Thankfully that means that there isn’t a hardware problem with the new MacBook Pro, which would likely be a lot more costly for both Apple and consumers to fix.

Head to the App Store on your laptop and apply a software update to patch your computer to fix both issues.
