Tuesday, February 25th, 2014

The OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 update was released a few hours ago. This update is recommended for all users who are running OS XMavericks. It addresses an SSL security flaw that was announced by Apple in its security notes for iOS 7.0.6 — an update for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch that was delivered at the end of last week.

In addition to the security fixes, the 10.9.2 update also improves compatibility with Gmail archive mailboxes (something many of our clients have been waiting for) as well as includes improvements to Gmail labels.

For more information on the update and how to update, visit Apple’s support page for 10.9.2 here. As always, be sure to backup up your machine before updating!

Apple released iOS 4.2 yesterday, which is available through iTunes for compatible devices.  Make sure you back up your device before you run the update!

iOS 4.2 includes AirPlay, an updated version of AirTunes that allows iTunes 10 and iOS devices running iOS 4.2 to stream video to an HDMI TV via Apple TV.  Also included in the update is AirPrint, which allows iOS devices to print wirelessly to a limited selection of HP ePrint printers.

Another new feature of iOS 4.2 is the free Find My Phone feature. Now users who do not have MobileMe can use Find My iPhone. Set up instructions on Apple’s site here.

For iPad users, iOS 4.2 brings multitasking from the iPhone to the iPad. Also, the addition of folders to the iPad’s home screen means more room for apps and better organization.
