Late last week Apple acknowledged the growing problem with new iMacs freezing. As of yet, I still haven’t recieved a report from a single Apple Gazette reader that this is problem…but I have recieved almost two dozen responses from users who aren’t having problems.
That doesn’t mean there isn’t an issue of course, I thought you just might like to know that fellow AG readers apparently aren’t having a problem. Apple has confirmed it, though, and are planning to issue an update later this month.
â€œA small number of iMac users have made us aware that a recent software update issued by Apple can sometimes cause their iMacs to freeze, requiring them to restart their iMac,â€ an Apple spokesperson told Macworld.
â€œWe are tracking down the root cause of this bug, and will issue a software update which corrects it as soon as we can â€” most likely later this month,â€ he continued. â€œWe apologize for the inconvenience.â€
We’ll let you know when the update is released.
