Apple has released OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 software update for Mac users.
Just after making the Yosemite version 10.10.1 available officially, Apple started testing the next update in November. A total of six beta firmwares have been released to developers before the roll-out of the final software. This roll-out marks the second update after the desktop operating system was released in October last year.
The OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, which improves stability, compatibility and security for Mac, is recommended for all Yosemite users. The update fixes the annoying Wi-Fi bug issue, although there were a few unofficial workarounds available for this.
Other noteworthy fixes are for Spotlight that was loading email content even with the Mail Preferences disabled, vulnerabilities discovered by Google's Project Zero and finally the Thunderstrike hardware exploit affecting Mac computers equipped with Thunderbolt ports.
Also included in the OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 are Safari 8.0.3, Safari 7.1.3 OS X Maverics and Safari 6.2.3 for Mountain Lion users. Check out the following fixes in OX S Yosemite 10.10.2.
