EFI and SMC firmware updates for Intel-based Macs

This article lists firmware updates that were released for Intel-based Macs. They update the firmware that originally shipped from the factory. If your computer isn't on this list, then you don't need an update to the factory firmware.

Some firmware updates for Intel-based Macs may not be displayed automatically using Software Update. If they don't appear in Software Update, they must be manually downloaded from the Apple Downloads site. If you're not sure if your computer needs a particular update, simply download and open the update installer. The installer will alert you if the firmware update is already installed or not needed.

Check your firmware version

Check your computer's EFI Boot ROM or SMC firmware version.

  1. From the Apple () menu, choose About This Mac.
  2. Click More Info.
  3. For OS X Lion, OS X Mountain Lion, and OS X Mavericks, click System Report. For earlier versions of OS X, skip to step 4.
  4. Click the Hardware section to reveal Model Identifier, Boot ROM version, and SMC version numbers.
  5. The version information is in the pane on the right, as in this image:
    About this Mac with Model Identifier

Available firmware updates

Use this table to find available firmware updates for your Intel-based Mac. Locate your model identifier in the table below to find out if an update is available for your computer.
Note: In some cases, System Profiler may report later versions of firmware than those listed below. If this is the case, your computer doesn't require any additional firmware updates. If your firmware version is lower than the one listed in this table, you should upgrade by following the link provided.
