First OS X 10.9.3 beta includes new ‘Retina’ resolution option for 4K displays

By Cody Lee on Mar 7, 2014

Late yesterday, Apple seeded the first beta of OS X 10.9.3 to Mac developers. The beta seemed insignificant, with no mention of any changes or new features; just a brief request that devs focus their testing on audio and graphics.

But as it turns out, there is at least one notable difference in the beta: a new ‘Native’ Retina resolution option for 4K displays. This enables users with compatible displays to use OS X in a noticeably sharper Retina mode at 60Hz… Read More

OS X Mavericks bug allows security researcher to capture nearly all SSL encrypted traffic

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 25, 2014

The nasty SSL bug was found in iOS last week that opens the door to a dangerous man-in-the-middle attack which makes it easy for attackers to intercept communications and steal sensitive info like usernames, passwords and even credit card numbers, by posing as a trusted website.

Apple quickly squashed the dangerous bug with the release of iOS 7.0.6. If you’re jailbroken, you can patch the SSL exploit without updating to iOS 7.0.6 (here’s how).

Unfortunately, Apple hasn’t yet issued an urgent OS X fix for the exploit, meaning Mac users are left out in the cold and at risk of having their personal information and passwords hijacked.

One security researcher from New Zealand has now confirmed that the vulnerability is more dangerous than previously thought: virtually all encrypted traffic to be intercepted, including iCloud data, Keychain enrollment, certificate from apps like Twitter and more… Read More

 

OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks update looms: FaceTime Audio, Messages blocking, Mail fixes and more

By Christian Zibreg on Feb 24, 2014

After releasing seven beta builds of the upcoming OS X 10.9.2 update to its registered Mac developers, Apple appears to be putting finishing touches on this highly anticipated second Mavericks update. A pre-release build of OS X Mavericks version 10.9.2 is now in circulation among a small group of Apple employees, indicating that a public release is around the corner. The OS X 10.9.2 update will (hopefully) fix Mail bugs while enabling greater feature parity between iOS 7 and Mavericks.

The latter entails enabling FaceTime Audio calling on the Mac and giving users the ability to block individual senders through the Messages app. Both of these features are supported in Apple’s mobile operating system.

The software will also fix dozens of bugs and bring useful tweaks and under-the-hood improvements, all listed below the fold… Read More

OS X: How to launch apps from unidentified developers on a case by case basis

By Jeff Benjamin on Nov 19, 2013

OS X has a feature that prevents apps from unidentified developers from launching out of the box. While this is a noble cause, it presents issues when launching legitimate apps from great developers that don’t happen to be on Apple’s whitelist.

You can go into OS X’s system preferences and disable this protection altogether, but there’s a much more sensible option than that. Instead, how about enabling apps from unidentified developers on a case by case basis? We’ll show you how after the break. Read More

 

OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 to fix remaining Mail bugs and refine graphics performance

By Christian Zibreg on Nov 18, 2013

Apple released its OS X 10.9 Mavericks as a free Mac App Store upgrade on October 22.

As is the norm with new OS releases, while these things tend to address complaints and issues from the previous version they frequently introduce new ones as well.

For example, immediately after Mavericks went live a bunch of people started complaining about a new and annoying Gmail issue in the stock Mail app.

This past Friday, the company supplied its registered Mac developers with the first beta release of what would become the OS X 10.9.1 software update. The software focuses on graphics enhancements and is said to squash the remaining Mail bugs… Read More
