“After existing in beta with developers for a few months, Apple is preparing to release the second update to OS X Yosemite in the coming days to customers,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“The OS X 10.10.2 update was seeded to Apple employees this week under the build 14C109, which is a bit newer than the most recent developer preview,” Gurman reports. “Sources provided the release notes, and there are some notable feature additions and fixes.

“the new release adds the ability for iCloud Drive to be viewed in Time Machine. This means users will be able to track changes over time, and locate lost items that were previously in their iCloud Drive accountsGurman reports,” Gurman reports. “Next, Apple says that WiFi disconnection issues will be fixed in this release.”

  1. You mean Apple have been fannying about adding new features to 10.10.2 when they could have fixed WiFi weeks ago and saved me the constant pain of dropouts and Wireless failure????? F@@k you Apple!!!!!!

    1. Please learn to read:

    2. I would imagine that people working on iCloud, might not be 100% up to speed of fixing wifi issues, no company is going to divert their entire coding staff to fix one issue, then reallocate them back and forth constantly, their may be more resources devoted to something, but it would be insane to have everyone dropping everything to shift back and forth to work on things as they arose.

  2. Love it. I also would like to point out that iTunes Match is really working great for me. Any changes in playlist, additions and all gets updated to all my iOS stuff/Apple TV. I wish it was built in to my car so that I can stream it all without the use of an iPhone or iPod. Oh yeah Album covers are all finally syncing properly across devices. It may not be in the news a lot, but Apple is working their butts off on this. It just doesn’t get a lot of press time.

  3. WiFi….. PLEASE Apple fix it this time..
    Just had to delete a few plist files AGAIN to get my iMac back online.. NO other computer/device had lost internet… JUST my iMac.

    I’ve had to bookmark/reading list this page (and printed it out as well) just because of the 10.10 WiFi issues..
    http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/os-x-10-10-yosemite-how-fix-wi-fi-network-connectivity-issues-1472093

    Airport utility will show no internet connection on the iMac, the MBP’s airport utility.. shows internet and works fine.
    Follow the steps in the link (mainly just deleting the files and it tends to come back up) just to get internet access back.

    Love everything about 10.10…. except WiFi.
    (odd my MBP never has this issue, just my iMac)

  4. ” You wouldn’t believe how much time we spent designing the trashcan”. If Apple doesn’t fix the “flat look”, I may go with windows. Got the 2012 i7 Mac Mini, cause 2014 not good enough.
    Not expandable.
