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.
“A 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,” an Apple spokesperson told Macworld.
“We are tracking down the root cause of this bug, and will issue a software update which corrects it as soon as we can — most likely later this month,” he continued. “We apologize for the inconvenience.”
We’ll let you know when the update is released.
