OS X 10.11.5 released with bug fixes and performance improvements

Unlike OS X 10.11.4, which shipped with a lot of feature updates such as password protection for Notes, Live Photos in Messages app and more, OS X 10.11.5 is a maintenance release.

Following is the change log shared by Apple:

  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set allowSpotlightInternetResults to False would cause Spotlight to use large amounts of CPU time.
  • Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn to True would have no effect.
  • Fixes an issue where only a single NetBoot image would appear in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences, even if multiple NetBoot images were configured on the server.

The update is available in the Mac App Store to download. If you have not upgraded yet, open the App Store and navigate to the updates tab to see the update. Alternatively, the update can also be downloaded from Apple’s Support website.

Apple has also rolled out updates for iOS devices, Apple Watch and Apple TV in the form of iOS 9.3.2, watchOS 2.2.1 and tvOS 9.2.1 respectively.
