OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 Released, Includes Safari 6.0.3 And Security Update

The long in development OS X update 10.8.3 was finally released today, bringing with it some useful features and fixes. The release also includes a new version of Apple’s web browser, Safari 6.0.3, and the first major security update of 2013 that addresses a number of vulnerabilities within Apple’s OS.

Here are a few highlights from update 10.8.3:

  • The ability to redeem iTunes gift cards in the Mac App Store using your Mac’s built-in camera
  • Boot Camp support for installing Windows 8
  • Boot Camp support for Macs with a 3 TB hard drive

Apple also lists a number of other fixes included in the update that address specific issues, which can be viewed here. Reports also say that Macbook Pros with Retina display have seen a battery life improvement of roughly 20 minutes following the new update.

There you have it! Now what are you waiting for? Go try out your new Windows 8! (KIDDING. But you can if you want…)
