“Apple has issued an update to Boot Camp drivers within Windows, preventing the random, loud pops from over-ranging and damaging the new MacBook Pro’s speakers. However, the driver doesn’t fix speakers already damaged by the problem,” Mike Wuerthele reports for AppleInsider.

AppleInsider has confirmed that users who have installed Boot Camp since 1 p.m. Nov. 23 should already have the updated drivers,” Wuerthele reports. “Older installations may require the user to manually run an Apple software update process from within the Windows installation.”

“Some users reported that MacBook Pro speakers were permanently damaged as a result of the pop over-ranging the hardware,” Wuerthele reports. “AppleInsider was told by Apple to have users manifesting speaker damage that persists in macOS after exiting Windows contact AppleCare phone support to document the problem, and to make a Genius Bar appointment for assessment and rectification.”

MacDailyNews Take: Obviously an oversight that Apple has quickly corrected and, where hardware has been damaged, will fix/replace.
