The 10.6.7 update is highly recommended for all current users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard, which includes general OS X system updates that improve the functionality, stability, and security of your Mac. In addition, this update fixes several issues that can cause your Mac computer to stop working. Specifically, the update improves the performance of the Mac browser, specifically the Safari web browser. Furthermore, it also fixes several problems with the Mac memory card, audio issues, and a variety of network errors.
The update is offered as a free upgrade to all users of Mac OS X Snow Leopard, as well as those who purchased a new Mac earlier this year. However, for those who already have Mac OS X Tiger installed on their systems, the update can be accessed through the "Leopard" application. If you're not sure whether or not you have this application, you can easily find it by going to the" Utilities" section in the" Logan" folder on your Mac OS X setup disk, or through the Control Panel if you have multiple versions of Mac OS X installed. Once you have access to the program, you'll be able to download and install the 10.6.7 update.
This is a relatively simple upgrade, but it's a necessary one. Since the Mac OS X Tiger has been such a popular operating system throughout the years, Apple does not want to release a version of Mac OS X that's incompatible with older computers and gadgets. Therefore, before updating your Mac, make sure that you back up your data as well as reformat your hard drive. If you don't do both, you could be looking at a computer void of all your data and no recourse if someone decides to take advantage of the new version of Mac OS X. So, if you haven't updated your Mac in some time, now might be a good time to do so.
