Apple on Tuesday released a completed OS X 10.11.2 update for El Capitan, dealing with a slate of bugs in the operating system.

The download is available through the Mac App Store's Updates tab, and addresses the "stability, compatibility, and security" of Macs, according to Apple. Specifically, release notes mention the following changes:

  • Improves Wi-Fi reliability
  • Improves the reliability of Handoff and AirDrop
  • Fixes an issue that may cause Bluetooth devices to disconnect
  • Fixes an issue that prevented Mail from deleting messages in an offline Exchange account
  • Fixes an issue that prevented importing photos from an iPhone to a Mac using a USB cable
  • Improves iCloud Photo Sharing for Live Photos

Apple seeded five betas of the update during its testing phase. OS X 10.11.1 was only released in late October, itself coming than month after El Capitan's premiere on Sept. 30.

OS X updates sometimes contain hidden changes. It's not yet clear if 10.11.2 might include a fix for things like empty VIP mailboxes in Mail.
