OS X Lion 10.7.1 Live


Apple has released the first patch for their latest Mac OS X Lion, bringing you up to 10.7.1. The latest update fixes a whole lot of bugs and other minor issues experienced by Mac owners, especially the recently refreshed MacBook Air and Mac Mini owners. This is perhaps why the new update comes out in two distinct versions, one for the MBA and Mini while the other version is applicable to all other Macs and older machines.

Some of the major fixes included are:

  • Address an issue that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in Safari.
  • Resolve an issue that may cause system audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out.
  • Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections.
  • Resolve an issue that prevents transfer of your data, settings, and compatible applications to a new Mac running OS X Lion.
  • Resolve an issue in which an admin user account could be missing after upgrading to OS X Lion.
The first of many updates for OS X Lion also marks the introduction of the “delta” updates which Apple says will allow for smaller updates (mostly bug fixes and patches) to their OS from now on. So this update is a mere 17.4mb compared to one of the latest OS X Snow Leopard updates 10.6.8 which totaled up 453mb.


From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
