Apple Releases OS X 10.9.3 With Enhanced Support for 4K Displays, Syncing Improvements




Apple today released OS X 10.9.3, after two months of developer testing. The last 10.9.3 developer beta, build 13D61, was released just over a week ago.

The update, which is recommended for all Mavericks users, improves 4K display support on the late 2013 Mac Pro and 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display. According to the release notes, it also re-adds the ability to sync contacts and calendars between Macs and iOS devices using a USB connection and it improves the reliability of VPN connections using IPSec.

Today's update also includes Safari 7.0.3, and Apple has released iTunes 11.2 as well.

First outlined after the initial 10.9.3 beta, the improved 4K support enables HiDPI Retina scaling on 4K displays for the 2013 Mac Pro and Retina MacBook Pro with DisplayPort 1.2, which improves the size and readability of text and other on-screen elements. 10.9.3 also includes 60Hz 4K output for the 2013 Retina Macbook Pros and the higher refresh rates will improve response times for smoother game playing, video editing, and more.

OS X 10.9.3 can be downloaded through the software update function in the Mac App Store or through the following links:

Anyone want to test their 7950 graphic card (Not Mac flashed) to see if it fixes that mini-displayport restart bug? ^_^

And still no true 24p playback in OS X. Thus the Mac mini remains the *almost* perfect HTPC...

Already running that, thanks.
The update blurb isn't trying to suggest that you're not.

24p playback has been available for a long time. That is how I watch my bluray rips on my projector using a mini-DVI to HDMI adapter on my 2007 24" iMac.

You will need HDMI 2.0 for that.
