In early November, we reported that Apple had begun seeding versions of OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 and 10.9.2 to employees within the its Software Engineering division. Since then, Apple provided two OS X 10.9.1 seeds to registered developers. These builds focus on improvements to Mail, Voice Over, and general system stability. The update will serve as the first point-update to the recently released OS X Mavericks.

Now, we’ve learned that Apple has provided build 13B40 of 10.9.1 to AppleCare employees. This internal release indicates that the public release of OS X 10.9.1 is near as Apple’s support staff will become familiar with the software in order to seemingly assist customers in the near-future. That particular build is the same version provided to developers last night. OS X 10.9.2 will likely follow with additional fixes in the following weeks.

  1. Would be great if they could fix Finder, the worst piece of software in OSX.

  2. curious to know if you heard any latest news on iOS 7.1 Beta?

  3. Jason Kessel says:

    Hopefully this fixes the annoying slow open/save dialog box issues!

  4. Would love if a mail update included a visual indication of when it’s retrieving new mail.

    Hopefully Apple can fix this peace of software. Mavericks is like Vista for MS. Essential elements do not work any more (Mail, Finder, …). Downdate would be the better name.
