Apple Releases Supplemental Update To OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5 With Bug Fixes


Today Apple released a supplemental update to OS X Mountain Lion version 10.8.5. The update is available now in the Mac App Store and addresses a number of issues, including a bug that keeps the FaceTime HD camera on the 2013 MacBook Airs from working.

Here’s the full list of changes:

  • Resolves an issue that may prevent certain applications from using the FaceTime HD camera on mid-2013 MacBook Air systems
  • Fixes an issue that may cause external drives to be ejected after the computer goes to sleep
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent HDMI audio from working after waking from sleep
  • Fixes an issue that may prevent certain USB Bluetooth adapters from working

OS X Mavericks is right around the corner, with a release pegged for later this month. This could very well be the last update to Mountain Lion.
