New version of Mac OS X El Capitan released

As many photographers use the Apple Mac platform for organising and post-processing their images, I thought it relevant to highlight a new update to the Mac OS X operating system. (This doesn’t mean that I favour one OS over another for photography; that debate, just like the Canon V Nikon one, is a waste of time and energy!!)

On Tuesday (Dec 08, 2015) Apple released an update to OS X operating system – version 10.11.2. This is an update to El Capitan, which is the latest version of the Mac OS. The update includes performance improvements and bug fixes.

The update includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Addresses an issue that caused Bluetooth devices to disconnect in certain circumstances.
  • An improvement Wi-Fi reliability.
  • Fixes an issue that prevented Mail from deleting messages in an offline Exchange account.
  • Fixes an issue that prevented importing photos from an iPhone to a Mac using a USB cable.
  • Improves iCloud Photo Sharing for Live Photos.
  • Security improvements.

As with all software updates you should back up your Mac’s data before installation. You can install the update by going to the Apple menu, select About This Mac, and click the Software Update button in the Overview window.
