Apple MacA quick heads-up to all of you Apple Mac users out there, Sony’s Bridge for Mac software has just hit version 2.0. As we previously detailed, this now means that you will be able to update your Xperia phone software (something that was previously not possible before v2.0).

Other functions of the software includes the ability to transfer photos, music, videos and podcasts between your Xperia and iTunes, iPhoto or a custom folder on your Mac. Separate files can also be transferred between your phone and Mac by using “drag and drop” in a file browser. You can download the software here.

Thanks @_hellodave_!

    I got this update a few days back. But I have an issue with it, It detects my Neo(MT15i) as Neo V(MT11). Is anyone else having this issue?? You think it will be issue when i update using this?

     Frankly, if Sony wanted to do this it shouldn’t be too hard, as the Sony pc suite software is mostly written in Java anyway.

  • You flashed the ICS Beta? You can always update by flashing the ftf file with flashtool, or by going back to a stock rom first.

  • Bridge for Mac still doesn’t support MTP mode properly (unlike the Windows version).  If takes about 10mins to find the phone if in MTP mode.  I emailed Support and they just said the Mac version only supports Mass Storage mode! :(

  • Sony say this will run on OS X 10.5.8 or later.

    I run OS X 10.5.8 but Bridge For Mac does not work on my Mac.
    (System Version: Mac OS X 10.5.8 (9L31a)
    Kernel Version: Darwin 9.8.0)

    Any suggestions please??
