Apple today released OS X 10.9.4 after just a month of testing and a month and a half after the release of OS X 10.9.3. The last 10.9.4 developer beta, build 13E25, was released last week.

The update, which is recommended for all Mavericks users, improves reliability of wake from sleep and fixes an issue that prevented some Macs from automatically connecting to known Wi-Fi networks. Today’s update also includes Safari 7.0.5.

pple today released iTunes 11.2 with several improvements to Podcast browsing, giving users a way to find new episodes with an “Unplayed” tab and the ability to save favorite episodes to a computer. Episodes can also now be deleted after they’re played, and episodes that are available to download or stream can be found in the “Feed” tab.

There’s a fix for an issue that caused iTunes to become unresponsive when updating Genius, and the update also includes improvements for overall performance and stability. Apple also recommends users download Podcasts for iOS 2.1 or later to sync podcast episodes, an update that was just released on the App Store.

OS X 10.9.3 is now available to download through the Mac App Store. Apple says the update is recommended for all Mac users, and that it improves the stability, compatibility and security of the operating system.

Other additions and changes in OS X 10.9.3 are:

The ability to sync contacts and calendars between a Mac and an iOS device using a USB connection
Improved reliability of VPN connections using IPsec
Safari 7.0.3 is also included

While the update introduces a “Retina” output mode for the late 2013 15-inch MacBook Pro, it does not grant the same ability to the 13-inch model. Apple’s current Thunderbolt Display does not come with a 4K resolution, meaning the support is only available for third-party monitors.

OS X 10.9.3 had a particularly long beta period, with nine pre-release builds being provided to developers before Thursday’s official launch to the public.

The launch of OS X 10.9.3 comes less than a month after Apple opened up its beta seed program to all users in exchange for “quality and usability feedback.” The program allows anyone, not just Mac developers, to test pre-release versions of OS X.

iOS 7.1.1 is now available through Software Update in the Settings application on an iPhone or iPad. Documentation accompanying the update says it contains “improvements, bug fixes and security updates.”

Apple has said that iPhone 5s owners will also see further improvements to Touch ID fingerprint recognition after installing the update — something the company has continuously done since the launch of the handset last year. The update is also said to fix an issue that could arise when using Bluetooth keyboards while VoiceOver is enabled.

The latest iOS update follows March’s release of iOS 7.1, a significant upgrade that addressed a number of issues that had lingered since last fall’s debut of iOS 7. In particular, iOS 7.1 fixed a number of crash-related issues that iPhone and iPad users were experiencing while using the multitasking view and browsing the web in Safari. iOS 7.1 also brought improvements for Siri and Touch ID, and also set the stage for the launch of CarPlay in supported vehicles and aftermarket install kits later this year.

Apple updated update Safari for Mavericks to version 7.0.3, adding improvements to compatibility, stability, and security. The update includes a new option for turning off push notification prompts for websites, improves credit card autofill, adds support for webpages with generic top-level domains, and fixes several security issues.

– Fixes an issue that could cause the search and address field to load a webpage or send a search term before the return key is pressed
– Improves credit card autofill with websites
– Fixes an issue that could block receipt of push notifications from websites
– Adds a preference to turn off push notification prompts from websites
– Adds support for webpages with generic top-level domains
– Strengthens Safari sandboxing
– Fixes security issues, including several identified in recent security competitions
