Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac Updated, Brings Plenty of New Features

Dec 17, 2010

Knowing that some Mac owners out there might want to have their very own Windows Phone 7 device, Microsoft had to come up with some kind of idea to make it possible for their smartphone to be able to connect to their Apple-branded computer. Considering that Zune Software doesn't work on an Apple machine, Microsoft released the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac, and now it has its first major update. Microsoft officially began pushing it out earlier today.

Users of the application will be told that an update is available when they open it up today. The update comes in at only 7.6MB, but Microsoft is labeling it as a "critical" one nonetheless. Some of the updates that users will find, are the ability to now sync purchased items from the phone, to the computer, as well as a new experience for setting up a new device. Users will now be able to use the Browse Device feature to manually select, import, and delete media.

The program will also now be able to have better support for photos, and should have better performance overall. The update is available right now, and is available through the Microsoft AutoUpdate application. As we said above, users should be notified of an update waiting for them as soon as they open up the application.
