Apple releases latest Safari updates for OS X Yosemite, Mavericks, & Mountain Lion following pulled versions

Safari updates

Apple has released updated versions of Safari for OS X users running 10.10 Yosemite, 10.9 Mavericks, and 10.8 Mountain Lion. The latest versions of Safari for each respective OS X version now comes to Safari 8.0.2, Safari 7.1.2, and Safari 6.2.2.

Earlier this month Apple released updates for Safari for OS X, but later pulled the releases after a short period. Today’s update addresses a number of issues relating to iCloud Drive, iCloud Keychain, and what Apple calls a rare issue caused by the previous release.

Apple has posted a document detailing the changes in the latest versions. The update is available through the Mac App Store. In addition to releasing new Safari updates, Apple also updated its TestFlight beta distribution app to version 1.0.2 noting “minor stability and performance improvements.”
