Apple has finally added driver support for the Windows Precision Touchpad in its latest Boot Camp update. The new 6.1.15 update includes support for the Windows Precision Touchpad, including a one-touch click, a lower right-click right corner, a down scroll up, and three- or four-finger gestures.
Various Reddit users noticed that the surprise update started yesterday and apparently works better than third-party solutions like Trackpad ++ and mac-precision-touchpad, which people have had to use for years. “It works better than both with better palm and thumb recognition,” said one Reddit user.
Microsoft first introduced the Windows Precision Touchpad with Intel in 201
The timing of such a significant update to Boot Camp is also surprising, and may suggest that Intel-based Macs will still coexist with Apple’s M1-based Macs. Apple discontinued the Intel-based MacBook Airs last year, but you can still buy a 13-inch MacBook Pro with an Intel processor for now. Apple said it would take about two years to switch to Apple’s silicon.
