Apple Releases Mac OS X 10.5.7 Update-Enabled Mail/iPhone Notes Syncing!

Posted by
May 13th, 2009

After a long stretch since Apple last updated Mac OS X, yesterday marks the release of their latest updated, 10.5.7.

While there are many new features, perhaps the most important to iPhone and iPod Touch users is the ability to sync ‘Notes’ between Apple’s Mail application and their iPhone 3.0 based device. (As noted by www.spaziocellulare.com at http://www.spaziocellulare.com/ispazio/en/2009/05/12/apple-solves-iphones-and-ipod-touch-dfu-mode-problem-in-mac-os-1057-and-brings-notes-sync-with-via-usb-and-itunes-82/).

I highly recommend that every Mac owner update.

Here’s a list of the other changes/updates:


Includes latest security fixes.
Includes additional RAW image support for several third-party cameras.
Improves performance of video playback and cursor movements for recent Macs with NVIDIA graphics.
Resolves an issue with Dvorak keyboard layout in Mac OS X 10.5.6.
