Apple Releases OS X 10.9.5 With Reliability Improvements, Safari 7.0.6

Apple today released OS X 10.9.5, after approximately a month of testing and two months after the release of OS X 10.9.4.

The update, which is recommended for all Mavericks users, improves the reliability of VPN connections that use USB smart cards for authentication and it improves the reliability of accessing files located on an SMB server. Also included with OS X 10.9.5 is Safari 7.0.6.

OS X 10.9.5 will likely be the final update to Mavericks ahead of the release of OS X Yosemite, which is expected in October. OS X Yosemite brings several improvements to the operating system, including a revamped look and several new features that improve integration with iOS.

Update: Apple has also released Safari 7.1 for 10.9.5 users. Safari 7.1 adds DuckDuckGo as a built-in option in the search field, encrypts Yahoo searches from the search field, and improves website compatibility with both Reader and Autofill. DuckDuckGo is a search engine that does not track users.

Apparently Apple decided to test how much their servers and bandwith pipes could handle at one time. Releasing a new iOS and a new OS X on the same day, that's ballsy.

I hope they finally fix the wifi problems (that were supposed to be fixed in 10.9.4). I'm ready to dump my 2012 rMBP 13.


I'll give you a fiver for it. Cheers.

Anybody know if this update is expected to make Safari feel snappier?


Actually this is the first update where Apple made Safari significantly less snappy so people would stop making this joke.

Mavericks is my favourite OS X version thus far. Followed by Tiger. Not upgrading to Yosemite anytime soon.

I will never use Safari until Apple deems fit to give us a freaking SAVE AS/TO option. Jebebus Apple!


What the heck are you talking about? Safari does have a Save As feature.

Very wrong attitude. Update is always good especially in Mac land.


Sadly, not since Lion...
