Mac Users Attention!

From Mac mente 3/9/24...

iOS 17.4, iPadOS 17.4 and macOS 14.4 are available and ready for primetime!
macOS 14.4 is here...and if you haven't upgraded your Mac yet, I highly recommend you do so. Same is true for your iPhone and iPad, with iOS 17.4

There are only a few new features, security enhancements and bug fixes in these updates, however as always I highly recommend you keep you Mac, iPhone/iPad up to date for security and safety reasons.

For macOS 14.4 I've highlighted one of the new features below, it's hardly earth shattering, but hey not all updates are:

New Emoji characters (mushrooms, phoenix, lime, and shaking heads are now available) along with transcripts for the Podcast App (similar to viewing lyrics for a song, or the transcription of a voicemail). An option to show only icons for websites on your Safari Favorite bar

Along with Security enhancements and bug fixes.

If for some reason your Mac is set to automatic updates, but hasn't done the update yet, please upgrade manually. If you do run into issues having upgraded your machine, let me hear about them, I can report them to Apple or better yet try and re-create the issues, or help you resolve them .

If you have questions, concerns or just want to chat about your Mac, iPhone or iPad, please call or text us @ 847.902.6681 or email geoff@themacmentor.com, at your convenience.

We look forward to hearing from you soon!
