Apple Releases Mountain Lion 10.8.2 And Lion 10.7.5 Supplemental Updates

Apple has quietly released two supplemental updates for OS X Mountain Lion and Lion today. The first supplemental update for OS X 10.8.2 is available now in the Mac App Store, and a similar update to 10.7.5 has also been made available. Both updates contain small bug fixes.

From Apple:

    I guess I will have to see if it solved the battery bug.

    My 8 mo old MBA 11in went from 5h to 1.5h battery life w 10.8, and to 1.25h with the 10.8.1 update with the bonus of a persistent Service Battery flag being thrown.

    Anybody else still suffering w the battery issue?

    I’m holding off updating my late ’11 MBP until the battery issue is resolved/improved.
