Apple Seeds 10th OS X 10.8.3 Update (Build 12D65) to Developers

Apple today released yet another beta of their upcoming OS X 10.8.3 update, just one week after the previous beta. This marks the 10th beta that Apple has seeded to developers, which is significantly more betas than we’ve seen with any OS X update in the past.

The build number of the new update comes in at 12D65, and as with the previous beta builds, Apple has asked developers focus on AirPlay, AirPort, Game Center, Graphics Drivers, and Safari. According to 9to5Mac, this latest beta build addresses the strange “File:///” bug that many sites reported earlier this week.

The update is available now through Software Update for users already using a beta build, as well as direct download from Apple’s developer page.

  1. I have a feeling all these betas are because Apple is trying to get rid of their lag problems in the operating system. There has been numerous issues, especially noticeable on the retina MacBooks, with lag in browsers and other apps when scrolling, and lag when changing windows/desktops with swiping, accessing mission control and so on. Small lag spikes occur on each and every one of those options. I myself had to install the unofficial WebKit version of Safari to get rid of lag on heavy pages like Facebook. Getting rid of this lag that infects the whole system, requires lots and lots of work and optimization.. just hope that it hasn’t been for nothing.
