It may not be quite as snazzy as the iOS 6.0 release, but it’s still helpful to have updates.
On Wednesday, Apple released Mac OS X 10.7.5. The new operating system update, a 1.14 gigabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:
- The 10.7.5 update is recommended for all OS X Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac. It also includes Gatekeeper, a new security feature that helps you keep your Mac safe from malicious software by giving you more control over what apps are installed on your Mac.
- Resolve an issue where icons in Launchpad may get rearranged after a restart.
- Improve Wi-Fi reliability for iMac (Late 2009 and newer).
- Resolve an issue using Spotlight to search an SMB server.
- Improve compatibility connecting to Active Directory servers.
The Mac OS X 10.7.5 update is available for free and can also be located, snagged and installed via Mac OS X’s Software Update feature.
Mac OS X 10.7.5 requires an Intel-based Mac and Mac OS X 10.7.4 or later to install and run.
