Updates for apps and other software can be extremely beneficial for keeping your devices working properly. These types of updates are, recently, also as common as water in the ocean. Some updates can be really useful for actually offering better support for other software programs to run. Having a large program with a different brand OS on the same hard drive is never a bad thing, but it can make it more difficult to use or process. Apple has taken the liberty of making things a bit easier with their newest update for OS X Mavericks.
Apple’s OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 update has made things a bit simpler for those of us who use Gmail as their main mailing service.
The newest update has added better support for Gmail’s services directly in the OS X Mail app. For the Gmail users who utilize custom settings, don’t worry because Apple hasn’t forgotten about you all either. There are a few fixes to make sure that the program still runs smoothly along with your presets in the Mail app. The update also holds better search reliability and a fix for a certain issue with contact groups within the Mail app. They have also made Smart Mailboxes a bit more reliable as well.
Obviously the mail update is the biggest fix made for the OS X, but it is far from the only update being made on Mavericks 10.9.1.
The VoiceOver app has seen an update now as well, allowing for recognition with emojis. VoiceOver will also have better functionality while using Facebook as well.
Apple’s main browser, Safari, is also getting itself a bit of an update. Safari, version 7.0.1, fixes an issue that some users had while the program was filling out certain forms and then becoming unresponsive. Stability issues have also been fixed to allow for certain crashing issues for some users.
The new apps that came with the new OS X, iWork and iLife have been updated as well. The two newer apps to the family will now be updated properly when being used on non-English systems. A simple update but one that may make things easier for those who use iWork and iLife religiously.
While Apple has not released information on their security content of their new update, expect to see it when the full investigation is up and the necessary patches are released. The OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 update also includes the security info for the new Safari 7.0.1 update as well.
