The OS X 10.10.2 beta is now live and is said to finally fix the Yosemite WiFi issues, although Apple said the exact same thing last month when it released the public version of 10.10.1. The thing is, some Mac users were still having issues with their wireless connection, such as slow speeds and dropping.
Some people, such as myself have to keep turning WiFi off and on again in order to get a connection, although this could also been down to the router that could need an update.
It is not yet certain if this latest update (thanks to Apple Insider) will finally resolve this persistent issue, and so only time will tell, although we are sure devs will put the word around as to what they think of this new version.
OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite public release date — We cannot be certain when its public release will be, although if we are to go on the previous update, then we could be looking at December 17th. This is because 10.10.1 beta was released on the 4th to developers and made available to everyone else on November 17th, so we just hope Apple follows the same pattern — if not sooner.
We can very well understand why many of you will say that Yosemite has to be the worst version of Mac OS X for stability, but believe it or not, this has to be one of the more stable ones. The WiFi, Bluetooth and Airplay issues are only isolated ones, and while it can be annoying for those affected, we have certainly seen worse in the past.
This is not the first time that a new version has been released with WiFi issues, and so is a recurring thing, which you would think Apple would have a handle on by now. Yosemite is far from perfect, but it has to be the best release to date, although it could do with some fine-tuning during the early part of 2015.
