And, boom, Apple just goes ahead and releases it! OS X 10.9.4 is here and this Mavericks update, unlike the previous three, is all about bug fixes.
Mavericks users should click Software Update (Apple menu > Software Update) because the mothership has released a fourth Mavericks update — OS X 10.9.4 — after just four developer betas:
— OS X 10.9.4 13E25 Seeded to Devs
— Apple Seeds OS X 10.9.4 , iOS 7.1.2 Betas
— Apple Seeds OS X 10.9.4 13E16, Outs 2014 iMacs Again
— Apple Seeds OS X 10.9.4 [13E9] to Devs
— See also: iOS 7.1.2 Update Now Available
And, as far as these things go, it’s a fairly modest update: WiFi, wake-from-sleep and a range of Safari fixes baked into v7.0.5 of Apple’s default browser. Yes, there is more, but only just barely.
— Fixes an issue that prevented some Macs from automatically connecting to known Wi-Fi networks
— Fixes issue causing the background or Apple logo to appear incorrectly on startup
— Improves the reliability of waking from sleep
A big part of OS X 10.9.4′s appeal is security content, of which Safari 7.0.5 accounts for a chuck of that.
Lastly, Security Update 2014-003 is also available and brings patches for range of critical issues found in OS X 10.7.5 and later.
And, there was much rejoicing…
What’s your take?
