Logitech announced today that it is making its own Logitech Unifying Software for the MacBook Pro.
The software will be available as a free download from the company’s website for Macs starting in mid-February.
This comes just days after Microsoft announced the same software will arrive on other new Windows laptops in the first quarter of the year.
The software will also be available for other Windows PCs, including those running Windows 8, Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
Microsoft’s Mac-specific software suite will be called Logitech’s Unifying Technology Platform, or UDPL.
The UDPL software is being designed to be more flexible, easier to install and configure and more compatible with existing hardware.
“Logitech is excited to be working with Microsoft on our first ever Windows Unifying and Mobility Platform,” said Mike Gatto, general manager of product management for Logitech.
“Logitech Uniting Software is a perfect fit for the newest MacBook Pro, as it is designed to integrate with existing peripherals and software to deliver seamless, seamless access to the latest and greatest.”
The UDPS software will work with the latest operating systems like Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro.
Microsoft and Logitech will also work on a Windows 10 universal desktop program for the Mac.
Logitech said the software will initially support only the MacBookPro 13″ and MacBook Pro 15″ models, but it will support later models as well.
In addition to the software, Logitech has also released a “Macbook Pro-specific” software bundle for the product, which includes a Mac OS X version of Logitech software, a keyboard and mouse, and the company has also included an Ethernet adapter for Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3 ports.
