Apple on Thursday released a new supplemental update to macOS 10.15.6 that addresses issues with Wi-Fi and iCloud.

The latest macOS 10.15.6 Supplemental Update arrives about one month after a previous update patched bugs related to virtualization and waking from sleep.

The supplemental update released Thursday squashes a bug that prevents Mac devices from automatically connecting to Wi-Fi, as well as an issue in iCloud Drive that caused file syncing problems.

Users can download the macOS 10.15.6 Supplemental Update by heading to System Preferences and Software Update on their Macs. The update carries a build number of 19G2531.
