(macOS) Updating your Clarity Max Pro and Max Touch’s Firmware

(macOS) Updating your Clarity Max Pro and Max Touch’s Firmware

If your new Clarity Max Pro or Clarity Max Touch’s webcam isn’t sliding down after you finish using it, follow this simple guide to update its firmware and zap the bug.

Unfortunately, a small bug crept into our first batch of Clarity Max 32” Pro and Touch monitors – when they’re connected to a Mac, the webcam will automatically pop up, but it won’t slide back down when it’s not in use.

Important: Do not attempt to force Clarity’s webcam back down. Doing so will likely damage the motor and void your warranty.

Thankfully, we’ve got updated software for the monitor that completely fixes the issue. If the bug is affecting your monitor, follow the steps below to get your Clarity Max working as designed.

Note: this is only applicable for macOS users. If you’re having issues with your webcam not retracting on Windows, please contact us at support@alogic.co and we’ll figure out what’s going wrong.
