Apple Releases OS X Yosemite 10.10.1 With Wi-Fi Reliability Improvements

Apple today released OS X Yosemite 10.10.1, the first update to the new operating system since its initial October release. Testing for OS X 10.10.1 began on November 3, with Apple seeding two betas to developers before launching the software publicly.

The new software is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.

10_10_1_update

The OS X 10.10.1 update is recommended for all Yosemite users. It improves the stability and compatibility of your Mac. This update:

- Improves Wi-Fi reliability
- Improves reliability when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange Server
- Improves reliability sending Mail messages when using certain email service providers
- Improves reliability when connecting to remote computers using Back to My Mac.

The update should fix several major issues that users have been seeing with OS X Yosemite, including a major Wi-Fi issue that’s caused connection problems for a number of users.

Probably not iOS 10.10.1 for a few years yet.

Edit: Now they've fixed it my comment is obsolete... Such is life.

I have to say, as a fanboy, the number and seriousness of the bugs in the last few releases (everything past Snow Leopard) is starting to make be thing the OS is getting bloated and unwieldy. Sort of like, do I dare say it...Windows. :eek:

Tim keeps talking about what is important is the experience the use has interacting with the system, but having to deal with a lot of buggy systems is not providing a good user experience. If more "features" yields more frustration my the user, those new features are not necessary making the product better.

It may be time to get this unwieldy beast under control. Maybe the next major release should not contain much new but just make things work better under the hood. JMHO

For what it is worth, I've been running the 10.10.1 beta for a couple of weeks and it really seemed to stabilize everything. Wi-fi has been solid for me in comparison to 10.10.0. Mail seems much improved as well.

Overall, I'd say it is a great update.

My only problem with Mail is that it doesn't seem to fetch new mail quite as often as I'd like. My iPhone and iPad will receive an email and then, between 5 and 10 minutes later, my MacBook will receive it. I just think Mail for OS X should be constantly 'looking', like on iOS.

I'd also like Mail on my iPad to respond to what I do in Mail on my iPhone sooner, too. For example, say I have 4 unread emails on my iPhone, I read them all and sort them/trash them. They'll still show as unread on my iPad lock screen and in the Mail app until the iPad either decides to search for new mail, or I manually update my mailbox. Other iOS devices should respond almost instantly to your actions on other devices and should dismiss lock screen notifications/unread items when they're dealt with on other devices.
