Upgrade time: Apple announces new point releases of OS X and iTunes

Apple released the latest point upgrade of OS X and iTunes to the world, bringing their versions up to 10.9.3 and 11.2 respectively.

The new Mavericks release is a minor bug fix one, with the following upgrades (the only one note-worthy here is the support for 4K displays):

  • Improves 4K display support on Mac Pro (Late 2013) and MacBook Pro with 15-inch Retina Display (Late 2013)
  • Adds the ability to sync contacts and calendars between a Mac and iOS device using a USB connection
  • Improves the reliability of VPN connections using IPsec
  • Resolves an issue that prevented Font Book from installing PostScript Type 1 fonts
  • Improves reliability of copying, editing and inspecting permissions of files on an SMB file server
  • Improves reliability of network home directories
  • Improves stability when installing configuration profiles
  • Improves login speed for users in Active Directory groups
  • Includes Safari 7.0.3

iTunes is even less underwhelming, with improvements to podcasts listed as its most important upgrade. I guess Beats music inclusion will happen at a later date.

So grab them if you need them in all the usual places.
