Apple has released updated keyboard software for Intel Macs.

Keyboard Update 1.0 (12MB) is available through the Mac OS X Software Update feature, and also by direct download from the company.

The company recommends the update is installed in all Intel-based Macs: the MacBook Pro, iMac and Mac mini.

Keyboard Update 1.0 addresses the "reliability of keyboard and mouse functionality", the company said. It requires Mac OS X 10.4.6.
