Planning on getting your hands on the late-2013 MacBook Pros? Perhaps you might want to hold off on your purchase just yet, at least until Apple has issued an update that will address some of the recent bugs that have been reported lately. According to several user reports, the late-2013 MacBook Pros are facing bugs on their brand new laptops whereby both the 13” and 15” models are giving them problems, suggesting that this is most likely software related as opposed to hardware. The reports claim that both models are experiencing instances where the keyboard and trackpad of their laptops are freezing up, rendering them unusable and where a hard reset through the power button on the laptops is required to get the trackpad and keyboard working again.
There have also been reports where users are running into problems trying to install Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 via Boot Camp on their computers. The problem is apparently with the partition Boot Camp creates, and this affects a variety of installation methods, such as through USB drive and DVD installation through the use of an external drive like SUperDrive. Apple has yet to officially acknowledge these issues and has yet to release a statement on the matter, so for now Apple users experiencing these issues will have to attempt to sort it out themselves and wait for Apple to release an update that will deal with the problem.
