If you’re using Boot Camp and just installed Windows 10, you might want to snag this.

Apple on Wednesday released its Boot Camp 6 update to add drivers for Windows 10. The update is still propagating and is not yet available for OS X, although it’s been noted the update is available within Windows partitions in Boot Camp.

Boot Camp 6 also includes support for several Mac features within Windows 10, including USB 3, USB-C, Thunderbolt, built-in SD and SDXC card slots, built-in or external Apple SuperDrives, and the Apple keyboard, mouse and trackpad.

Windows 10 support is only available on select Macs with OS X Yosemite and the latest version of Boot Camp, which will automatically download the drivers needed to use Windows 10 on a Mac.

Boot Camp requires an authentic copy of Windows 10, which can be purchased as either an ISO file or USB stick from Microsoft for US$119. Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 users can upgrade to Windows 10 for free from within their Windows partition as long as the user’s software is completely up to date.

If you’ve downloaded the new drivers and have any feedback on the experience, please let us know in the comments.
