Getting impatient with Mavericks and the bugs that it has forced you to deal with? You’ll be happy to know that Apple is, according to 9to5Mac, preparing to update Mavericks, though no release timetable has been revealed so far.
The updates are reportedly directed at specific apps within Mavericks, including Safari, Mail, iBooks and Remote Desktop. iBooks will be upgraded to version 1.0.1 and “includes bug fixes and improvements to performance and stability,” accord to the report. Safari will be upgraded to version 7.0.1; though exact details on what the Safari update will include aren’t known, the incremental bump from 7.0 to 7.0.1 suggests that the fixes will be minor in size. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that the update to Safari won’t be significant for users. Meanwhile, the update to Remote Desktop is reportedly “recommended for all Apple Remote Desktop clients,” and will reportedly address “issues related to overall reliability, usability, and compatibility.”
Perhaps most significantly, though, is the coming update to the Mavericks Mail app, which is expected to address problems users have experienced when attempting to sync Mail with the Gmail accounts. The release notes for the Mail update allegedly state that “this update improves stability and compatibility with Gmail, and includes fixes for users with custom Gmail settings.”
Considering that the problems between Mail and Gmail emerged virtually as soon as Mavericks was released, this update can’t come soon enough. We’re eagerly waiting any and all Mavericks patches that Apple has to offer, however, especially considering that many users have reported multiple problems with Mavericks.
