Apple addresses Mavericks issues with updates for Mail and iBooks

By , Nov 7, 2013

OS X Mavericks (Desktop, MacBook)

Good news this afternoon for folks who have been dealing with teething issues in the just-released OS X Mavericks. Apple has posted updates today for the Mail and iBooks apps, which should resolve two of the more popular complaints.

The iBooks update brings the app to version 1.0.1 and includes bug fixes and stability improvements. And the Mail update promises to improve general stability and compatibility with Gmail, solving issues that made the client unreliable…

Here are your iBooks release notes:

iBooks Update 1.0.1 

This version of iBooks includes bug fixes and improvements to performance and stability.

And here are the Mail release notes:

Mail Update for Mavericks includes improvements to general stability and compatibility with Gmail, including the following:

- Fixes an issue that prevents deleting, moving, and archiving messages for users with custom Gmail settings

- Addresses an issue that may cause unread counts to be inaccurate

Earlier this week, it was reported that Apple was working on fixes for several apps, including iBooks, Mail, Safari, and Remote Desktop. And although the first two were released today, there’s no word on when we’ll see the last two appear.

As usual, current OS X Mavericks users can download and install these updates by visiting the ‘Updates’ tab in the Mac App Store (if you don’t already have automatic updates enabled).

        Missing some features, oh well at least its a free update. And it is better than the alternatives. And Apple did say they were gonna fix it.

    Has anyone had a problem when trying to restore a new iPhone 4 (or any other model) on Mavericks ? When I tried it it said the file was corrupted….. Not happy as I’ve lost data from Apps and had a pain in the ass removing all the old apps I deleted off my phone ages ago :(

    Pretty cool to see separate updates for stock apps. Wish they would do the same on iOS instead of having to wait for the full iOS update. Also would make more sense to put iOS updates in the App Store app instead of tucked away in the barely opened Setting app.

    They need to address the fact that since I’ve updated to the latest iOS my iPod won’t connect to the internet at my gym. For the life of me I can’t get it to throw the page up to accept the terms and conditions to join. Any help would be appreciated :):)

    My Mail settings are supposed to auto download/refresh every few minutes. Since upgrading to Mavericks, I only get new mail if I MANUALLY download. Hello? My preferences in Mail are set to download automatically. How to fix this?
