Here's the description in full:

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.

The update only takes up 3.35MB of space, and it is aimed at machines running OS X 10.8.4 with a build version 12E3067.

Available now, MacBook Air owners should be able to download Software Update 1.0 either from Apple's support site or directly from the Software Update tab in the drop-down menu on their laptops.

To recall, Apple unveiled a new and improved MacBook Air at the 2013 Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco last month.

Sporting Intel's new Haswell chips, the big draw this round is the battery life.

The 11-inch model jumped from an average of five hours to nine hours of juice, while the 13-inch version was bumped up from seven hours to 12 hours.
