Apple releases Mac OS X 10.7.1 with Wi-Fi improvements, audio out fixes

post #1 of 65
Thread Starter 
Apple on Tuesday released Mac OS X 10.7.1, its first security and maintenance update for the newly released Lion operating system, with improved Wi-Fi reliability and resolutions for issues related to HDMI and optical audio output.

The update is available through Software Update and is a 17.4MB download. Apple recommends that all users running OS X Lion update to the latest version. Changes in Mac OS X 10.7.1, according to Apple, include:

Addresses an issue that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in Safari
Resolves an issue that may cause system audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out
Improves the reliability of Wi-Fi connections
Resolves an issue that prevents transfer of your data, settings, and compatible applications to a new Mac running OS X Lion
The software update contains additional fixes for users running Apple's latest MacBook Air and Mac mini hardware, released last month. For those users, the latest update:
Resolves an issue where MacBook Air may boot up when MagSafe Adapter is attached
Resolves an issue causing intermittent display flickering on MacBook Air
Resolves an issue that causes the SD card slot in Mac mini to run at reduced speed with SD and SDHC media


Interestingly, test builds of Mac OS X 10.7.1 were not issued to developers prior to Tuesday's release. Developers were only given Mac OS X 10.7.2 for testing the forthcoming iCloud service.

The Lion 10.7.2 build issued to developers was not known to address any of the outstanding issues or glitches that were found in the initial release of Lion. It is not known why the company did not provide its Apple Developer Connection members with a pre-release beta of Mac OS X 10.7.1.

Lion was released in July for $29.99 as a download on the Mac App Store, and reached 1 million downloads in its first 24 hours of availability. Users who would prefer to have the operating system on a physical medium can pay a premium, and buy Lion for $69 from Apple.

10.7.1 was not issued to developers.

10.7.2 is roughly 650MBs in size and fixes some glaring Active Directory authentications issues and DFS share access issues.

What else it fixes I don't know as those were our 2 biggest problems with Lion.

oh cool... I was wondering why I couldn't connect to the internet after waking my computer up from sleep, it was a Lion Wifi issue.

Which is what it says.

Smallest 10.x.x update ever? I think so.

HHhhmmmm... I'm so tempted, but I'm going to wait a little and see if 10.7.1 adds any new issues, especially since I don't see any of the problems I'm experiencing with Lion listed here.

It just occurred to me that since Lion is in the app store, there's no longer an option for a combo update.
post #7 of 65
Small update - is 10.7 doing delta upgrades? or was that just iOS5?

Re combo update - will be interesting to see when the AppStore offers 10.7.1 as the download. It's not a combo update but you could do a clean install with no update needed.

How would you have a combo update for the first update? There was no combo 10.6.1. There was no combo 10.5.1.

Hmmmm, my iMac will only shut down half the time, the rest it just sits there with a white screen with the small spinning black lines (sorry not sure how best to describe it), then I have to hold in the power button.

Highly annoying!

Of course there is: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1437

Only the Lion purchase is from the app store. Updates apparently will be posted online.

Not a "combo" update.

GRIN! Oops. Yikes, I'm not even thinking today.

Just went to check for software updates and the only one that shows up is the Lion Server 10.7.1 update.

[Edit] It appears if you've downloaded and installed Lion Server, the update is for both.

It's probably in response to this issue: https://discussions.apple.com/thread...art=0&tstart=0

WOW Apple, how hard is it to add an AirPlay button to QuickTime Player and Plugin?! For that matter, why not all iLife apps too?

Let's hope it also invisibly fixes some of the finder issues and video glitches that we know they will never own up to.

I have the same problem. Hopefully it is fixed. Updating after TM backup is done.

Why not ask Steve why they haven't done it? There's probably a half dozen reasons you'll accept and three dozen reasons regular people would accept.

I can think of one: QuickTime can play AVIs (et. al.) with Perian. No iDevice can. So you can't be guaranteed viewing of your files when AirPlayed via QuickTime.

I want to know how on earth an Air boots up when you plug in the mag-safe adapter?????
post #21 of 65
That WiFi issue was bugging the heck out of me. Patch is installed and taking the wait-and-see approach. Everything so far seems to be humming on my 3-week old MBA!

and the agreement says... you're entitle to updates like 10.7.1, 10.7.2, etc. but not 10.8. So another cat coming I guess!

Nowhere in the agreement does it say anything about the existence of 10.8, nor does it imply it.

EVERY agreement from 10.2 on has said that you're entitled to 10.x.x updates for free but not 10.x updates. It doesn't mean OS X is dead and it doesn't mean it isn't.

If this had fixed the issue of optical audio completely? Okay, so it doesn't stop working randomly, but 5.1 still does not work in VLC or MPlayerX. :/
post #25 of 65
No doubt the people who are being effected by the mentioned bugs are finding it irritating, but I have to say that personally, Lion has been the most trouble free OS upgrade I've ever had.

Once I found out how to reverse the scrolling of screens, I've not looked back - I'm really impressed with it.

did anyone actually do the update? curious if any improvements?

I did. So far so good. The WiFi update alone is worth it. More news as they develop.

Doesn't fix the iMac wifi issues. Gee, now there's a surprise... Dunno why I bothered updating. They never fixed the Snow Leopard spinning beach ball of death issue either.

I have a mid 2010 MBP. I had several coffee shop wifi networks issues connecting even with other macs running snow leopard had no problems. My browsing was slow at home even with a 8 mbit connection. I now notice Wifi is near istant from sleep and pages load faster and less buffering interruption on youtube

My MBP was not able to connect to my home WiFi network upon wake from sleep. I used to happen all the time. I am not having this problem after I the update.

So what? It can simply grey out the AirPlay button when that situation arises and make a pop-over dialog saying why it can't work with that file. You make it sound like this insurmountable endeavor.

Hey, I know. I want it, too. I just figure if anything, that's Apple's reason.

I wasn't. You just didn't need to say it since the article already did.

I'm personally experiencing an issue whereby my mid-2010 iMac will not wake from a lengthy rest period (as in overnight or returning home from work) with 10.7 installed. From what I read this seems to be a common issue with my model of iMac but I'm not sure to what other models this problem extends. The only fix I've found thus far is to completely power down and back up again. Anyone else having this issue know if it's been addressed in 10.7.1?

i have older imac but no issues like that. maybe dont let hard drive ever sleep (system pref energy saver). set hard drive sleep to never. let your display sleep at some interval that you like. on my imac, hit spacebar and instant on with no lag.

Unlike iOS, with OS X you don't have to wait for Apple to give you features. Google Airflick.

Nice, but I'd like some tweaks to the new UI stuff. Some of it is too sensitive.
post #39 of 65
The update shows as 17 MB on my iMac that was upgraded to Lion, but my 13" MacBook Air that shipped with Lion has a 59.4 MB update. And the new build # is Mac OS X Lion 10.7.1 (11B2118).

How about the audio popping when using analog output?
