It has only been five days since Apple seeded the last Beta build of Mac OS X Mavericks 10.9.4, but that hasn’t stopped the company from releasing another build to developers.
OS X Mavericks
Apple recently introduced an iMac that’s meant to work as a gateway desktop into the Mac ecosystem, with an enticing price tag and reasonable specs. Best Buy’s offering a limited price drop for the machine, and if you’ve got an active educational email account, you could pick up the entry-level computer for quite the discount.
Last week, Apple seeded the second beta build of OS X Mavericks 10.9.4, but that doesn’t mean Apple is resting on their laurels. The Cupertino-based company has released the newest build for Mavericks, but as usual, it’s strictly meant for developers.
Apple has seeded a new beta of OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 to developers for testing. The pre-release software has the build number 13E16 and is available through the Mac Dev Center for download. The accompanying seed notes do not reveal any notable changes to the Mac software, as was the case with the first beta released last month.
Apple has apparently forgotten to renew its SSL certificate, resulting in certificate errors while updating OS X from the Mac App Store.
While Apple’s recent OS X releases have been mainly focused on bringing iOS-like features to the Mac, Apple has also introduced a number of new features only on OS X, some of which we’d like to see on iOS as well.
Apple today released OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 publicly, following several beta releases that were seeded to Mac developers. The update improves stability and security of your Mac along with better support for 4K displays, and the ability to let you sync contacts and calendars with your iOS device via USB.
We were expecting Apple to release OS X 10.9.3 this week, but instead it has released yet another beta version of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 (build 13D61) to developers.
The new beta version arrives less than a week after the ninth beta version was released.
Apple followed up the release of iOS 7.1.1 today with more software updates. Safari has been updated to version 7.0.3 and OS X Mavericks, Mountain Lion and Lion have all received security updates.
