Apple released OS X Lion, 10.7.1. Typically, these updates are pretty standard and boring. However, this update addresses an issue I’m having with Safari… or what I thought was a Safari issue (see image above). Safari refuses to load a web site and says it’s YOUR network or internet connection.
I thought it was an annoying bug in Safari. Turns out it’s a Lion problem and Apple is trying to fix it with 10.7.1. It claims to “Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections.” (I’m assuming that’s what they’re trying to fix) Fingers crossed.
So, if you installed Lion and use a Wi-Fi connection, you should get the update.
Here’s the rest of the boring update details:
- 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
