Apple has just released the latest versions of iOS and OS X El Capitan. Both the operating systems could do with some tweaks and we’re very curious to know what all Apple has managed to fix this time around.
Let’s start with iOS
The latest version of iOS now available for public download is 9.2.1. and it was released yesterday. It will bring many new security updates and bug fixes to your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
The update is roughly 40 mb in size and can be downloaded over-the-air from your “Settings” menu. This should preferably be done over wifi, but if you use your phone’s data, that’s fine too since it isn’t a very large file. Alternatively, you can connect your device to iTunes and get the update from there.
It is interesting to note that this public release comes just after the release of iOS 9.3 beta to the developers. (If you want to read about all the new features that will come in 9.3.
The Mac OS X update
After over a month of beta testing, the latest version of El Capitan is finally available to the public. OS X 10.11.3 is available online on the Mac App Store and can be downloaded by anyone who has the supported hardware.
To download the update, just open the App Store app on your Mac and navigate to the “Updates” tab. If your Mac supports the new version, it should appear there as a free download.
Be warned though, because the update is a large one – almost 1.5 GB, so find yourself something creative to do while your laptop is out of action for a while.
Apple has promised that this update will enhance El Capitan’s performance and fix tons of bugs. Let’s hope for our sakes that it is true, because OS X El Capitan has so far been a bumpy ride. We’d be really glad to see the patches fixed with this update!
