Apple Released Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 Build 11E46 To Developers


OS X Lion 10.7.4 Build 11E46

Apple has released another Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4 Beta build 11E46 to developers this morning through the Mac Developer forum. Two weeks ago, Apple released the last update to its not publicly launched OS X Lion 10.7.4 to developers, and advises them to focus on certain points in the upcoming OS X Lion release in the public. However, now after two weeks, the Cupertino Compnay has released OS X Lion 10.7.4 Build 11E46 to developers with stunning no known bugs and issues in the operating system.  The Apple has still asked developers to focus on the App Store presence in the operating system along with Mail, QuickTime, and screen-sharing features.

It seems that Apple has boosted the OS X Lion 10.7.4 development right after the attack of Flashback Trojan on the massive number of Mac running machines. It is also reported that Apple has been working on an entire new iTunes App Store, and therefore, the company is kept pressing the developers to focus on the App Store, and the graphics being used in different machines. The refresh model of Macbook series is also on the track to come out in the upcoming months, and said to be carrying a retina display. Apple has been developing the OS X Lion 10.7.4 from several months, and it appears that they reached the final step. Apple has yet to announce any public release date for the OS X Lion 10.7.4, but we believe that the OS update will come out soon.
