Update your Mac: Apple fixes major flaw in OS X Yosemite, but won’t patch Lion, Mountain Lion or Mavericks — A serious vulnerability present in every iteration of Apple’s desktop operating system since OS X 10.7 — one which allows any user process to gain root privileges — was disclosed to the public on Thursday following the release of OS X 10.10.3, which addresses the issue, and users are urged to update as older OS X versions will remain susceptible to attack.
Photos for Mac launches with OS X 10.10.3, replaces iPhoto and Aperture — With OS X 10.10.3, Apple’s new Photos app, meant to replace both iPhoto and Aperture for people managing photos and video clips on their Mac, is now available to all Yosemite users.
The app is organised primarily into Photos, Shared, Albums, and Projects tabs. Users can narrow down content further through Moments, Collections, and Years views, which group files according to date and location metadata.
iTunes Update improves Mac Photos compatibility — Apple released iTunes 12.1.2 on Thursday following Wednesday’s release of OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 and the new Photos app for the Mac. Apple’s release notes say the iTunes update improves import and syncing support from the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch into Photos.
