Before you even think about September 18 and iOS 7, you might want to check out the software update on your Mac, as Apple has just released OS X Mountain Lion v10.8.5. Quite frankly, I can’t remember the last time I updated my iMac’s OS, so I badly need to check on this one.
Recommended for all OS X Mountain Lion users, v10.8.5 brings in several fixes for Mail, Xsan and AFP file transfers, as well as overall improvement on stability, compatibility and security.
OS X Mountain Lion v10.8. full release notes are as follows:
- Fixes an issue that may prevent Mail from displaying messages.
- Improves AFP file transfer performance over 802.11ac Wi-Fi.
- Resolves an issue that may prevent a screen saver from starting automatically.
- Improves Xsan reliability.
- Improves reliability when transferring large files over Ethernet.
- Improves performance when authenticating to an Open Directory server.
- Addresses an issue that prevented a smart card from unlocking preference panes in System Preferences.
- Contains the improvements included in MacBook Air (Mid 2013) Software Update 1.0.
Before you run Software Update, we always suggest you back up your system first, especially if you don’t regularly run Time Machine or other backup software.
