OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, the second update to Apple’s latest operating system for Mac, is expected to be released to general public in the next few days, which will bring iCloud Drive in Time Machine, Wi-Fi, security and VoiceOver fixes, among other improvements, 9to5Mac is reporting. The OS X 10.10.2 update has already been seeded to Apple employees under the build 14C109, which is said to be a bit newer than the most recent developer preview.

“First, the new release adds the ability for iCloud Drive to be viewed in Time Machine. This means users will be able to track changes over time, and locate lost items that were previously in their iCloud Drive accounts. Next, Apple says that WiFi disconnection issues will be fixed in this release. Apple has been promising WiFi fixes for some time, but, based on recent history, it’s unclear whether this release will actually solve the issues users have been reporting”.

Below are the release notes of upcoming OS X 10.10.2 update via Apple employees:

  • Resolves an issue that may cause WiFi to disconnect
  • Resolves an issue that may cause web pages to load slowly
  • Fixes an issue that caused Spotlight to load remote email content when the preference was disabled in Mail
  • Improves audio and video sync when using Bluetooth headphones
  • Adds the ability to browse iCloud Drive in Time Machine
  • Improves VoiceOver speech performance
  • Resolves an issue that causes VoiceOver to echo characters when entering text on a web page
  • Addresses an issue that may cause the input method to switch languages unexpectedly
  • Improves stability and security in Safari

    wonder if they will ever allow the use of iCloud drive for time machine. That way you could back up anywhere.

    That image is from OS X 10.5 / 10.6, not 10.10.

    Ah 10.6.8…Apple at its peak!

    I have snow leopard and yosemite partitions on my computer and speed is not even close. Snow Leopard is still the best.

    Never will I trust ALL my data with any cloud drive. Always will use an external drive and do encrypted iTunes backups with my iPhone rather than iCloud backups. If it is in the cloud, you better be ok with the fact it will likely end up being seen by someone else.
