Mac OS X 10.6.5 Update Fixes MacBook Air Graphic Issues

A few weeks ago we reported of the graphic issues and kernel panics many users were experiencing on the new MacBook Airs. The issues got quickly reporte to Apple, which acknowledged them in a document leaked by BGR. With the latest Mac OS X 10.6.5 update, it seems like the issues have been fixed.

As Apple writes in a support document:


After waking from sleep, your MacBook Air display may flicker or fade from light to dark repeatedly.


Download and apply the Mac OS X v10.6.5 update to resolve this issue.

You can go download 10.6.5 from Software Update or Apple’s website, and watch a video of the aforementioned MacBook Air graphic issues below.
