OS X Mavericks (Desktop, MacBook)

Apple has followed up on its iOS 7.1.2 software update with a public release of OS X 10.9.4 on the Mac App Store. The latest version of OS X Mavericks fixes an issue where some Macs would automatically connect to known Wi-Fi networks, improves the reliability of wake from sleep and includes Safari 7.0.5. The full changelog has been posted ahead…

The OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 Update is recommended for all Mavericks users. It improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac. This update:

  • Fixes an issue that prevented some Macs from automatically connecting to known Wi-Fi networks
  • Improves the reliability of wake from sleep
  • Includes Safari 7.0.5

The update weighs in at 283 MB on the Mac App Store and has a build number of 13E28. Apple began seeding OS X 10.9.4 beta to developers for testing in late May, with four beta versions that were each released about a week apart. OS X 10.9.4 build 13E25 was seeded just five days ago.

OS X 10.9.4 could be one of the last versions of Mavericks, with the all-new OS X Yosemite slated for release in the fall. If there are any future updates to OS X Mavericks, they would likely be centered upon minor compatibility and security fixes.

    So if you signed up to test out Yosemite as a regular consumer when will we get to download it? I’m talking about the first one million people that signed up and did not have to be a Dev to get Yosemite.

    • Tim Cook said this summer I believe, so in about 1-3 weeks the first one million people who signed up will get it.

    So, the update didn’t fix my Wi-Fi issues at all. Still when I wake my MacBook from sleep it doesn’t reconnect to Wi-Fi. I have to turn the Wi-Fi off and on again!
