If you’re a Mac or iOS user, it’s time to give your device an update because Apple recently released the Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 and iOS 8.1.3 update that features bug fixes and more.
For Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.2, the update fixes several issues like Wi-Fi disconnecting, problems causing web pages to load slowly, an issue Spotlight loading remote email content when the preference was disabled in Mail and more.
Apart from that, Apple also included several improvements like the audio and video sync when using Bluetooth headphones, VoiceOver speech performance has been improved, and stability and security improvements in Safari. The update also brings the ability to browse iCloud Drive in Time Machine.

As for iOS 8.1.3, it’s not a major update since it’s only 247MB in size “includes bug fixes, increased stability and performance improvements”, but it’s pretty significant, especially for those of you who have limited storage on your device.
The update says that it will reduce the amount of free storage required to perform updates, a major problem plaguing iOS 8 users since its release – older iPhone and iPad users needed a whopping 5GB of empty space to update to iOS 8, so this change is most definitely welcomed.
For Mac users, check the App Store on your Mac to perform the update (restart required), and for iOS users, hit the Settings app and look for Software Update under General.
