Storefront limited to 10.7 for several days
Apple has at last updated the Mac App Store version of OS X Lion to v10.7.1. The v10.7.1 code was originally introduced last week through Software Update and Apple's website, but until today the Mac App Store copy of the OS remained stuck at v10.7. For several days this forced people upgrading from Snow Leopard to download an update immediately after installing Lion.
The v10.7.1 code copes with a variety of problems, including issues with Wi-Fi connections, data migration and video playback in Safari. A separate edition of the patch is available for 2011 Mac minis and MacBook Airs, fixing additional hardware-specific errors such as slowed SD card reads and flickering video. Combined the software represents Apple's first major clean-up effort for Lion.
