In the past week I’ve noticed some strange issues with my Mac. Either the trackpad was not working, or some 4-finger gestures were not noticed by the OS. Then the WiFi started to really slow.
I’ve done the usual: PRAM Reset, restarts, Hard Reset of the Time Capsule and so on. I had to go somewhere and when I got back home I found out Apple has released OS X 10.10.1, un update that addresses some issues with WiFi and Mail, among others. Here’s the full changelog:
Improves Wi-Fi reliability
Improves reliability when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange server
Resolves an issue that may prevent Mail from sending messages through certain email service providers
Addresses an issue prevents connecting to remote computers using Back to My Mac
Resolves an issue where sharing services, Notification Center widgets and Actions may not be available
Addresses an issue that could cause Notiication Center settings to not be retained after a restart
Addresses an issue that might prevent the Mac App Store from displaying certain updates
Addresses an issue that could prevent some Mac mini computers from waking from sleep
Resolves an issue that might prevent Time Machine from displaying older backups
Addresses an issue that might prevent entering text in Japanese
Of course this is just a funny coincidence.
On the other hand, Apple released iOS 8.1.1 which takes care with some of the performance issues on iPhone 4S and iPad 2.
