Apple Removes Mac OS X 10.7.3

Mac Combo

Mac users were happy with the news of Apple releasing Mac OS X 10.7.3. However, the joy was short lived because of some bugs.

Mac OS X disappointed some users due to its bugs surrounding CUI issues and the crashing of applications. Apple is investigating the issues with test groups. It has decided to remove the standard 10.7.3 update from its servers and provide users with the ability to only download the combined installation. This combo installer is not having any problems with the CUI and there are no app crashing errors.

Apple removed its online download page for the standard (client) 10.7.3 download. Now website forwards to the combo download link. In addition, clicking a saved link that directly downloads the standard 10.7.3 installation puts up an Apple 404 page.

Apple has also removed the ability to download 10.7.3 (client) directly from software update. Now it is providing it with the combo installation to the users. This combined installer is typically a few hundred megabytes larger than the standard installer. However, the positive point is that users will not face the annoying bugs. This new build is reportedly showing up as “11D50b” instead of the client’s “11D50? labeling.

Users who have installed the client 10.7.3 download will need to manually download the combined update from Apple’s website.
