Apple updates OS X Mavericks to 10.9.3, brings better 4K support

OS X Mavericks

4K resolution: is a generic term for display devices or content having horizontal resolution on the order of 4,000 pixels.Several 4K resolutions exist in the fields of digital television and digital cinematography. In the movie projection industry, Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) is the dominant 4K standard.

Apple’s newest and least cat-themed operating system in quite some time, Mavericks, has been rolling along. Apple changed the big-name OS game when it released Mavericks for free, laughing at Microsoft’s now-arcane purchasing policies. Today, Apple updated Mavericks to 10.9.3, bringing a few new changes to the operating system.

Overall, the update is small in scope. It brings better support for 4K displays — which, at least, is something we’ll all need sometime down the line. The update also bundles Safari updates into the OS update, as opposed to leaving Safari as a standalone as it has been in the past. Padding the update, 10.9.3 will allow OS X and iOS to sync calendars and contacts using a USB connection, making life just a little more pleasant for those of us who preferred hard-wire transfers rather than this fancy cloud business everyone keeps talking about. Finally, a host of stability and reliability improvements have been made for things you likely would not have noticed in the first place.

To grab the update, you can click your computer’s Apple icon and hit Software Update, or you can load up the App Store and grab the update that way. If you’re one of those people that are stoked to sync your calendars and contacts through a USB cable, you can head over here and update to 10.9.3 via the most tedious option.

Let us know what you think of the update in the comments section below, which does not provide the option to upload your comments with a USB cable.
