Apple released another beta of the Yosemite Mac OS X but the Mac OS X Yosemite update does not fix WiFi problems.
The 10.10.2 build (14C68k) of the system didn’t identify any particular problem areas it would like to be focused on by developers as they test the new operating system.
When the first beta build of the Yosemite system was launched over two weeks ago, Apple asked developers to pay attention to numerous issues, including a Wi-Fi issue which has been a source of complaints since the new operating system came out.
The 10.10.1 update didn’t get rid of the Wi-Fi problems. Users affected by the problem continued to post in social media services, third party sites and Apple forums complaints about the Wi-Fi issue.
One of the unsatisfied Mac users said on the official Apple support forum:
“Stil [sic] the same S**T. One month later, I’m starting to think Apple laught [sic] at us. Or they are completely lost.”
Apple promised several other issues will be fixed with the update of the Yosemite that came out Monday saying the update:
– Resolves an issue that might prevent Time Machine from displaying older backups
– Addresses an issue that might prevent the Mac App Store from displaying certain updates
– Addresses an issue that could prevent some Mac mini computers from waking from sleep
– Addresses an issue that might prevent entering text in Japanese
There is a thread on the Apple Support site about the problem called “OSX Yosemite Wifi issues”. It is the longest thread on the website with almost 259,000 views and more than 1,330 comments since the Yosemite system came out in October.
But there are a few people who are satisfied by the patch saying:
“10.10.1 fixed the wifi issue. I had minor random wifi drops with Yosemite prior to the update. now it’s smooth sailing. Very quick and responsive.”
Computerworld claims that Monday there were 1,100 comments and 208,000 views. This means that since the second update has been released the thread grew by about 51,000 views and 230 comments.
The Yosemite update features significant improvements and a visual redesign, Mac OS X Yosemite was launched in mid-October and can be downloaded on the Mac Apple Store.
