Upcoming OS X Mavericks Updates Include Safari, iBooks & Remote Desktop Bug Fixes


Last week, we reported how Apple is trying to fix OS X Mavericks’ Mail app issues with receiving messages, sorting messages into folders and deleting messages faced by users of Gmail, a new report by 9to5Mac today is claiming that a number of updates addressing minor bugs found in Safari, iBooks & Remote Desktop Client apps have also been seeded to Apple employees for testing, which should be released in the Mac App store pretty soon.


It is said that the new Safari version is labeled as version 7.0.1, suggesting it is merely a bug-fix and performance enhancement release so, no new features are to be expected. For iBooks, Apple notes that the new version 1.0.1 includes “bug fixes and improvements to performance and stability”. Regarding the Remote Desktop Client app version 3.7.1, Apple says it is “recommended for all Apple Remote Desktop clients and addresses several issues related to overall reliability, usability, and compatibility”.

As for the aforementioned OS X Mavericks Mail update, we now understand that it will be a dedicated patch that is likely not rolled into a OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 update. The update will be labeled “Mail Update for Mavericks 1.0,” and the release notes for Apple employees (and likely consumers) say: “this update improves stability and compatibility with Gmail, and includes fixes for users with custom Gmail settings.”

It is believed that the said updates should be rolled out to consumers within the next couple of weeks.

    Than god. I can’t even use safari at all. It just makes the entire computer go slow as hell. To the point that it makes itunes freeze while playing music for like 3-4 seconds.
    They botched it so bad I had to go back to firefox.

  • Really? Safari is working mostly fine for me. Seems better than the previous version.
