Apple Releases OS X 10.0.3 (With Pic)

Apple Releases OS X 10.0.3 (With Pic)

by , 7:10 PM EDT, May 9th, 2001

Mac users were in for a treat this afternoon when Apple made Mac OS X 10.0.3 available via the Software Update utility. Details on the 10.0.3 update are scarce at this time, as even Apple OS X page is listing 10.0.2 as the most current version.

VersionTracker, however, claims that this update, "Ensures full visibility of file lists in directories that contain a large number of items."

Version tracker also claims the update to run 14.9MB in size. Running the Software Update utility on several computers at The Mac Observer did indeed list a 10.0.3 update, however the file was 1.6MB in size.

The download and installation, via cable modem, took just over one minute, including the now standard "optimization" process associated with OS X updates. Once the update is installed, the About This Mac... box lists the current version as "OS X 10.0.3 (Build 4P13)".

You can download the update via the Software Update System Preference, and you can also find more information about Mac OS X at the Apple Web site.

The Mac Observer Spin:

The rate at which Apple is releasing updates, even minor ones like this one, is a welcome turn of events. Rather than feeling like The Mother Ship is holding something back, OS X users can rest assured that they are being kept up-to-date with current technology.
