OS X 10.9.5 Update Released for Mac
Apple has released an update to OS X Mavericks, versioned as OS X 10.9.5. The update is recommended for all Mac users to install and includes bug fixes and security updates for core system software.
Two specific bug fixes are mentioned in the release notes of the update, the first being a resolution to some issues with VPN connections that use USB authentication, and the second aiming to resolve issues pertaining to access of SMB (Windows sharing) servers. The latter issue has frustrated a fair amount of Mac users who work in Windows PC heavy environments and share files between the two, making it a particularly welcome fix for some.
Safari 7.0.6 and related security updates and bug fixes are also included in the OS X 10.9.5 update.
All Mac users running Mavericks can find the update available through the Mac App Store, accessible via the Apple menu and by choosing “Software Update”.
Separately, Apple also released iOS 8 update for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, which brings many new features and improvements to iOS, as well as a minor update to Apple TV.
