On Monday, Apple releases a MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.7 to fix the MacBook Pro's SATA interface which was reported last week that it was limited to 1.5 in previous models.

Reports say that Apple MacBook Pro owner are complaining, saying they had the 3Gbps interface but does work well. Apple has since fixed the problem in the latest patch.

The update allows the SATA interface to work at full speed.

MacBook Pro EFI Firmware Update 1.7 addresses an issue reported by a small number of customers using drives based on the SATA 3Gbps specification with the June 2009 MacBook Pro,” the company said.

However the company reiterated that the new update has not qualified or offered these drives for Mac notebooks and their use is unsupported.

Meanwhile, Apple apologized for the problem last Friday when new iPhone 3GS owners had to wait two more days before they could activate their phones .

Over 1 million customers flocked to get the iPhone last week and due to large activation requests, some user get were delayed for hours, if not days.

As a way of saying it was sincere for the apology; it offered a $30 iTunes gift certificate for 3G S customers who faced activation problems.
