Apple axes Flash from new Macs

Publish date:

Adobe's Flash player and browser plugin has been removed from all new Apple products, effective as of this past Saturday.

As noted by The Guardian, Adobe software will now require user downloads with each new Apple machine, without the ‘click to install' prompt that explains why video animations or games may not be working and links users directly to the Flash download site.

The latest ban became clear when testers of the new MacBook Air found that they could not play Adobe Flash content, including YouTube videos.
