I tried to find the update to the MBA 2010 and it doesn't show up in my software update. I went to the direct download page and downloaded it and ran it and it says it cannot install because it is not relevant. It is a new (late 2010) 13.3" MBA with the latest version of OSX.

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

    The macbook air update is not applicable if you're running 10.6.6


    System Requirements
    Mac OS X 10.6.5

    I don't think it means that. I think it states that you must be running 10.6.5 or later for system requirments.

    Apple just released this software update today.

    If 10.6.6 fixed the problem they would not have issued this update.

    I believe that Tony T1 is most-likely correct: this update appears to be for 10.6.5 only.

    I am seeing an update to my previously installed 10.6.6 today...is an update for iDVD only. Downloading it now.

    Well - if that's the case I stand corrected. But I didn't know Apple released software updates for earlier versions of the same OS. If OS X 10.6.6 fixed the problem I would think they would just direct people to update to the most recent version of the OS rather than go to the trouble to release an update that fixes an issue in an older version of the OS.

    ?????

    Think about what this is...this wasn't an update to the OS, it was an update for one of the iLife apps. An actual OS update would be announced, and have incremented the OS version (i.e. 10.6.7). Apple frequently offers incremental updates to different pieces of what they sell (example:, say Final Cut Express needs an update). They'll offer that out there, without much of an announcement, but still it will be there if you perform a Software Update (IF you've got Final Cut Express loaded).

    I realize that this is NOT an OS X SL update!

    Sorry if you misunderstood what I was saying.

    I was under the impression that this update was to fix a sleep issue with the late 2010 MBA, not a specific software app. It was released today. You would think it would apply to all late 2010 MBA's

    Please go back and re-read the thread. The thread is NOT about the iDVD update.

    My bad, sorry for the confusion.

    Yes, marconiusrex, I agree - it is a little odd.

    If it is indeed just for 10.6.5 then that is consistent with the System Requirements - but inconsistent with how it's been broadly reported in the Apple/IT press (which, of course, is beyond Apple's control).

    Either way, it's times like this that I wish that Apple would see fit to add *one or two* additional words of clarification on their own descriptions of these updates - would save us all wondering in this case.

    Best regards.

    I was surprised that I wasn't see this update in SU, so I downloaded the DMG from the Apple support page. I ran the installer, and it tells me that the update cannot be installed, that "this volume does not meet the requirements for this update." I'd be surprised if it applies to 10.6.5 only, but I don't see any other logic.

    Kirk,

    If Software Update doesn't indicate your system needs the update chances are almost 100% your system doesn't need it. Going forward believe SU.

    I've just had exactly Kirk's experience on a 10.6.6 (Italian).
    Sounds really strange, but I agree with Roger : let's believe in Su
