OS X, iOS, updates, macworld australiaToday is operating system update day for Apple users. The company has released updates for both iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. There’s also an update for iTunes.

iOS 8.4.1. update

We reported on the iOS 8.4.1. update earlier. It fixes some security issues and squashes some Apple Music bugs.

OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 update

OS X Yosemite 10.10.5 is recommended by Apple for all users of Yosemite. According to the company’s support document, the update fixes a problem with Apple Mail and “certain email servers”, resolves an issue with the Photos app and GoPro cameras, and fixes a problem QuickTime Player had with Windows Media files. Apple also includes security updates in 10.10.5.

To install the 10.10.5 update, launch the App Store app and click on the Updates tab. The app will check in with the App Store, and the update will eventually appear. Click the Update button to continue with the installation. You Mac will needs to restart to finish the installation.

iTunes 12.2.2

Since iOS 8.4.1 has a bunch of Apple Music updates, it makes sense that Apple update iTunes on the Mac. Among the fixes in iTunes 12.2.2 are ones for My Music sorting and playlists, and there’s now the ability to view a list of artists that you follow on Apple Music (as Kirk ‘The iTunes Guy’ McElhearn points out, the list isn’t in an obvious place). Apple Music Connect now lets artists handle their accounts directly in iTunes.

To update iTunes to version 12.2.2, you can go to iTunes > Check for Updates from within the iTunes app. You can also run the updater through the App Store.
