Mac users will finally be able to update their Xperia phones

One major problem for owners of Sony Ericsson Xperia smartphones is if you own a Mac, you were unable to update your handsets to the latest version of Android. Both the Sony Ericsson Update Service and PC Companion are only compatible with Windows meaning those with a Mac were left to use a friend’s PC, or stay on old outdated software such as Android 1.6 in the case of the Xperia X10 when Android 2.1 was finally released.

This is fortunately set to change though. Sony Ericsson recently released an app called “Sony Ericsson Bridge for Mac” which allowed you to transfer music, videos and photos but, not update.  Bridge for Mac will be updated to version 2.0 shortly though which will finally allow Mac users to update Xperia smartphones. Unfortunately there isn’t a specific release date for the update as of yet but, at least it will become possible soon.
