As we reported last week, Apple has been offering replacement machines for those reporting issues and asking stores to ‘capture’ affected machines so that the company can investigate.

It’s not yet known how many owners are being offered the update, or whether it will also cure the issue of the machine’s new faster 801.11ac wifi speeds apparently being artificially limited.
