Late Thursday, Apple released supplemental updates for both its Mac OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) and OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion) operating systems.

The Mac OS X 10.7.5 Supplemental Update 1.0 fix, a 2.1 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

– Resolves an issue that may cause Time Machine backups to take a very long time to complete.

– Addresses an issue that prevents certain applications signed with a Developer ID from launching.

– The Supplemental Update is recommended if you installed the Mac OS X Lion v10.7.5 Update (build 11G56).

The OS X 10.8.2 Supplemental Update 1.0 fix, a 27.9 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

– Resolves an issue that may cause certain Japanese characters to appear incorrectly in Mail.

– Allows Safari to access secure sites when parental controls are enabled.

– Addresses an issue that may prevent systems with more than 64 GB of RAM from starting up.

– Resolves an issue that may cause DVD Player to unexpectedly quit.

The updates can be found, downloaded and installed via Mac OS X’s built-in Software Update feature and require Mac OS X 10.7.5 and Mac OS X 10.8.2 to install and run, respectively.

If you’ve tried the updates and have any feedback to offer, please let us know in the comments.

  1. 10.7.5 supplemental update made my 2011 macbook air unbootable. Starts with “bong” sound, goes to white screen. Can’t zap pram, pull up repair tools, boot from external, anything. May have killed logic board, according to repair place.
