OS X 10.9.4 Update Brings Fixes To Wi-Fi Issue, Wake-From-Sleep And Security Holes

A new update for Mac OS X has been released, which is aimed at fixing a number of issues that have been bothering some users.

The OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 update mainly targets a Wi-Fi connectivity issue, and addresses some small bugs and security holes. A problem with the previous OS version was preventing some users from connecting automatically to Wi-Fi networks, but that should no longer be an issue with the new update.

10.9.4 also improves "wake-from-sleep reliability", which was presumably an issue some users were struggling with. Additionally, it fixes a bug that caused the Apple logo to load incorrectly on startup--something that I'm sure bothered the company more than the users.

The new version also includes the latest Safari (7.0.5), the details of which have yet to be posted. Instructions and the list of changes can be found here on Apple's website if you're in need of further detail.

The release follows that of iOS 7.1.2 yesterday, which brought a similar array of smaller fixes to iPhones, iPads and iPod Touches. That update made improvements to iBeacon in addition to fixing some security issues and problems with third-party accessories. 

Most of these issues are small, but if any users have been experiencing them, they will no doubt be happy to have them addressed with these patches. All updates are, as always, free, and available through Apple on your device.
