Apple offered the new Mac OS version 10.10.5. The company was testing it in July-August and focused on solving problems and bugs. The ‘fruit’ giant already released Mac OS X 10.10.5 update that is meant to fix known issues and patch one vulnerability.

The issues are addressed in the minor upgrade. It only fixes the problem with DYLD vulnerability discovered in the  Yosemite release for ‘fruit’ computers. Some experts think that 10.10.5 is the last launch of Yosemite and Apple will offer El Capitan soon along with other future upgrade but won’t return to Yosemite.

It could have allow hackers getting root access to your computer if they could install one malware file on it. The exploit got the security patch in the new release.

It is still not clear when the release of OS X 10.11 El Capitan system is planned. Users are expecting it sometime in September along with iOS 9 and new line of iPhone devices.
