APPLE IOS 12.4.1, WATCHOS 5.3.1, MACOS 10.14.6 RELEASED
The three new updates are minor in scale and focus on bug fixes and other under-the-hood performance improvements rather than outward-facing features. On the Mac, the update fixes several issues:
– Resolves an issue that may cause certain Mac notebooks to shut down during sleep
– Fixes an issue that may degrade performance when working with very large files
– Addresses an issue that may prevent Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iMovie, and GarageBand from updating
Apple has released new updates for Apple TV, Apple Watch and the MacBooks — tvOS 12.4.1, watchOS 5.3.1 and macOS Mojave 10.14.6. All these updates are now available for all users to download and install. But before that, here’s all that is new in all the three updates.
iOS 12.4.1 New Release Update
Major updates are not seen in this iOS update and the update on the phone just says, “provides important security and stability updates”.
