watchOS 10.1.1

macOS 14.1.1

This update doesn’t mention much with regards to what it does outside of important bug fixes and security updates.

This update provides important bug fixes and security updates and is recommended for all users.

There is also a macOS 13.6.2 update available that appears to be available for the 14-inch M3 MacBook Pro. Some reports have noted that new Macs have been shipping with Ventura (13) with no way to upgrade to Sonoma (14). There have been no word if either of these updates fixes that issue.

Do any of your devices need upgrading? They do?! Then what are you waiting for?!
