10.2.4 > 10.2.5 > 10.2.6

in macOS edited January 2014
I've had my ibook aprox. 2 1/2 mos. I love it and have almost no problems. It came loaded with 10.2.4 Should I upgrade up to the newest versions 10.2.5 then to 10.2.6 or should I be okay? What are the differences?

    I've applied .5 and .6 as and when they came out with no problems. But i would say unless your having specific problems that you think might be addressed by these patches there is no real requirement. Working on the "if it aint broke ... " principle.

    I don't know...I always update. Always have, but especially with X. Never had any problems doing so. Anyway, I hate not being "current". Drives me nuts.

    Working on the "maybe it's snappier, more stable..." principle.

    I have two computers, one running 10.2.3 the other running 10.2.6. Never noticed any difference.

    10.2.4 was extremely buggy on my machine. I upgraded to 10.2.6 and it works great now, apart from the fact that it crashes every time it tries to wake form sleep mode.

    Can't have it all I geuss.

    I believe (but would have to double-check, and I'm just too lazy to search for it ) that 10.2.5 and/or 10.2.6 included a security fix, but then I'm wrong half the time so go figure...

    10.2.5 may have come with one. However I think security downloads are separate to an OS update most of the time.

    Go on. Upgrade. They're free, and you know you want to...

    I'd say upgrade, as little updates like those are most useful for newly released machines.
