Apple has released public beta of OS X 10.11.4 beta 3. Before released to the public, the betas were seeded to Apple developers two days ago. OS X 10.11.4 beta 3 brings many new features, improvements and updates to Apple’s desktop operating system including secure notes, live photos to messages, and other stability and performance improvements. Apple also updated the developer build of OS X 10.11.4 beta 3 to 15E39d.

Apple releases Mac OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan update soon after announcing the release of the iOS 9.1 software update. OS X 10.11.1 is the first point release of the OS X 10.11 El Capitan operating system.

Apple OS X 10.11 El Capitan computer operating system for Mac was released worldwide on September 30, 2015. During that same time, Apple was already developing OS X 10.11 update. Apple released four beta releases for both Public Beta testers and Apple Developers enrolled in the Apple Beta Software Program could test before releasing the final build on October 21, 2015.

Apple unveiled the next Mac operating system update, OS X Yosemite (OS X 10.10) recently at WWDC 2014. During the WWDC 2014 keynote, Apple showed everyone the new features, what to expect from OS X 10.10 and many other details of the upcoming Mac operating system. Apple also announced availability of OS X 10.10 Yosemite for beta testing to the developers. Since OS X Yosemite announcement, many Mac users are asking the inevitable question that comes first in their mind, “Will OS X Yosemite run on my Mac?”. Well, here’s the answer to your question, Official Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10 system requirements. The information is what Apple has provided to everyone. It may change later (not likely though) during the release of OS X Yosemite to the public.

Apple at WWDC 2014, unveiled OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the successor of the popular desktop operating system Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks. The OS X 10.10 “Yosemite” is named after the popular National Park in California. The OS X 10.10 desktop operating system update not only breaks the usual trend of using members of the cat family for Mac OS X naming, it also comes with a fresh redesigned minimal interface. As you’ll find out in this post, the new changes brings OS X more close to merge with iOS.

Apple has released OS X Lion 10.7.4 update that features a number of security fixes, general improvements and Safari browser update. If you’re running OS X Lion 10.7.3 or earlier, just run the Software Update app and download 10.7.4 update.

With the latest update the Cupertino company have fixed the FileVault vulnerability, which left users’ FileVault passwords stored outside of encryption in easy to read plain text. Before you start worrying, not every OS X user is having this issue. This issue only occurs if an OS X user have upgraded from a previous installation of Snow Leopard to Lion. If your Mac came installed with OS X Lion as standard, then your Mac is safe from this issue.

Ever wondered how the old vintage operating systems shutdown and restart sequence looked like? Well, it may not be possible to get your hands on the real systems now. It may also not be possible to install them just to experience it.

Here’s a cool website called The Restart Page. As the name goes, the website lets you experience shutdown and restart sequences of vintage operating systems in your browser. You can find vintage operating systems like Workspace, NeXT, Rhapsody, Windows 1.1, Windows 95, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Apple Mac OS, and more.

Apple Mac OS X Lion is now available for download from the Mac App Store for $29.99.

Apple has released the eighth major release of the Mac operating system, Lion. Lion includes over 250 new features compared to the earlier version of Mac, Snow Leopard. The flagship operating system is now available as a $29.99 download in the Mac App Store. Those who wants to buy Mac OS X Lion Server should have the Client version of Lion, server version costs $49.99.

Some of the new features include are: new Multi-Touch gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, an innovative view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore Mac software; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app.

Lion is the best version of OS X yet, and we’re thrilled that users around the world can download it starting today,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Lion makes upgrading a Mac easier than ever before; just launch the Mac App Store, buy Lion with your iTunes account, and the download and install process will begin automatically.

With the release of the latest Mac OS X 10.6.5 update, it was supposed that AirPrint or in simple terms, wireless printing from iOS devices like iPad/iPhone/iPod will be available to OS X users. But due to some last-minute issue, AirPrint support was pulled out in the final version of 10.6.5 release.

For users who wants to get back AirPrint support in the latest update of OS X, we found a manual work-around to enable AirPrint. But if you don’t want to mess around with files and do it manually, using this small app, “AirPrintHacktivator” is lot more easier.

Apple’s new AirPrint wireless printing service for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available for anyone running the golden master of iOS 4.2 on their iPad, iPhone or iPod touch. It was also supposed that the recent Mac OS X 10.6.5 update will bring AirPrint support to OS X, as it was available in the recent 10.6.5 pre-release builds. But AirPrint support from the final version of 10.6.5 was pulled out due to a last-minute issue (patent troll?).

Mac OS X users who are running 10.6.5 can now get AirPrint wireless printing support working, thanks to developer Steven Troughton-Smith. He has come up with a simple guide for getting AirPrint work on all installations of Mac OS 10.6.5.
