Alongside the roll out of iOS 8.1.3 download, Apple has also released OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and a 7.0.3 software update for the Apple TV 3G. However, it’s more of a bug fixer update that improves general stability and fuinctionality than one offering any notable new features.

Anyhow, not like the iOS 8, Yosemite has endured one of two minor issues, and with today’s launch of version 10.10.2 via Mac App Store, Apple has sort out to address them finally. According to the release notes, OS X 10.10.2 fixes issues with Wi-Fix, with Safari web pages loading slowly, improves VoiceOver, improves audio and video syncing when using Bluetooth headphones, and apparently have added the ability to browse through iCloud Drive in Time Machine.
