Is the remote supported by the 2012 Retina MacBook Pro?

I understand that the remote protocol is proprietary and may not be supported well by 3rd parties, but within the Apple ecosystem, this seems reasonable?

    Yes, the inline controls work. You can use the volume buttons to control the volume up or down on your macbook. Pressing the center button opens iTunes, pressing it again plays, pressing again pauses, double click to skip, triple click to skip previous.
