Apple Releases macOS 14.4.1 With Vital Bug Fixes

Apple has today released the macOS 14.4.1 software update and everyone with a compatible Mac can download it for free right now.

The update doesn’t bring within any big new features, but it comes with some notable bug fixes that you are definitely better off with than without.

The new update is available for download via the System Settings app and the macOS 14.4.1 update carries the build number 23E224. It’s available now, although Apple’s servers do sometimes take a little while to realize that fact so keep checking if you aren’t able to download it just yet.

The update brings with it some important fixes, not least for a bug that could have potentially caused some USB hubs not to work correctly when using an external monitor.

The full list of fixes deals with bugs that could have caused the following:

  • USB hubs connected to external displays may not be recognized
  • Copy protected Audio Unit plug-ins designed for professional music apps may not open or pass validation
  • Apps that include Java may quit unexpectedly

Again, we’d suggest that everyone download this new update as soon as possible, even if you aren’t suffering from one of the bugs listed above. Apple also notes that there are two security fixes in this update as well, one relating to CoreMedia and the other WebRTC — both potentially lead to arbitrary code execution.
