Apple issues SMC update for Mac Pro to enable Power Nap mode without waking the fan


Apple has issued a SMC update for the new Mac Pro, version 2.0. This small update addresses bugs with the detection of USB devices and enables Power Nap to update the system without spinning up the fan for “most activities”. A similar enhancement to Power Nap was released for the iMacs late last year.

This will allow Mac Pro owners to be able to sync apps like Mail and Contacts completely noiselessly, similar to how Power Nap can update data on MacBooks whilst they are ‘asleep’.

Thanks Jonathan and Austin!
