Boot Camp just got better

Posted on Sunday, March 06, 2011, at 4:33:00 PM UTC

The Boot Camp drivers in the latest generation of MacBook Pros now expose more of the laptop’s hardware to Windows.

This means that Windows can now adjust the screen brightness in the Windows Mobility Center, and when you plug in or unplug the laptop. 


The new drivers also expose the laptop’s ambient light sensor via Windows 7’s sensor platform, allowing the screen brightness to be adjusted automatically, and allowing 3rd-party programs to read the brightness.
