Apple Patches Pesky Graphics Bug In OS X Mavericks


Apple has issued a software update for those running the third developer preview of OS X Mavericks. The release promises to patch a major graphics bug that could cause machines to “reboot without warning.”

It goes without saying that the issue was a pretty significant one. Although Mavericks is still a developer beta, and therefore should only be installed by developers for testing, no one wants their Mac to crash halfway randomly while they’re working — particularly if they’re modifying their app for Mavericks, and they end up losing a morning’s code.

But today’s update, which is available to download now from the Mac App Store for those running the Mavericks DP3 release, should eliminate this problem for good.
