Apple has now released the 10.9.3 upgrade for OS X after nine pre-release betas. This is also one of the first that was seeded to everyday users as a part of their new program.
According to Apple Balla, the first major upgrade that is coming is the support for Retina displays on 15 inch MacBooks. This still won’t be available for 13 inch models since their Thunderbolt Port can’s support it, but this will in fact be a large upgrade for users that it is possible for.
Security upgrades are also coming in this, due in part to the breach that was discovered in iCloud. iCloud was exposed as having a security flaw recently, causing a lot of controversy, but they say that they have it under control at this point. Staying one step ahead of security problems is something that Apple has always focused on, making this important.
Performance wise, there is also an upgrade for VRAM, bumping support up to 1536MB in total, while some of the older models will only be upgraded to 1024MB. In either case, this can help with the support for 4k displays that comes along with the update.
The update is available now and Apple is encouraging all Mac users to make the update. Check it out in the App Store where it is available for free.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
