    fix something in an update vs. resolve something with an update

    Itís possible that the problem that you are experiencing has already been fixed in a firmware update.

    In most cases, software problems are resolved with a simple update.

    - fix something in an update
    - resolve something with an update
    Do these mean the same thing?

    Not exactly. 'Fix' and 'resolve' mean the same thing in this context.
    "Fix it with an update" tends to imply they will bring out an update specifically for this.
    "Fix it in an update" tends to imply they will fix it when they next release an update.

    Does bring out mean "to produce something"?
