Apple Magic Trackpad And Multi-Touch Trackpad Gets Update 1.0

Apple unveiled its new Magic Trackpad yesterday. The $70 accessory adds a trackpad that supports gestures to your desktop similar to the multi-touch gesture trackpads that are on MacBooks. Apple has announced a new update for the Magic Trackpad and trackpad on MacBook machines called update 1.0.

The new update 1.0 includes the software needed to use the new Magic Trackpad and installs support for gestures. Supported gestures include a three-finger drag and inertial scroll for MacBook and MacBook Pro systems.

The update also has a Trackpad System Preferences Pane for configuring the Magic Trackpad on Intel-based Mac desktop computers with Mac OS X v10.6.4 and up. Apple says that the update has to be run after you pair the Magic Trackpad with your Mac.
