The final build of OS X Lion 10.7.3 is here, before this release Apple seeded the beta version of 10.7.3 in the past and now the official stable version is available for download. Apart from security updates and bug fixes this new OS version comes with multi language support. Along with OS X Lion 10.7.3 release Apple also rolled out the Safari 5.1.3 browser version.
The older version of OS X Lion 10.7.2 was released last year in the month of October and after that Apple has just pushed this new version, although there is no major changes user will experience with the OS but still when you will install this new OS in your system at least the OS will perform a maintenance on the device. By releasing this OS Apple consider themself as they have just provided Apple users a security update thus to make OS X Lion more susceptible from security breach.
This update can be done either manual or automatically and the same thing can be done for installing and downloading Safari 5.1.3 version, but we strongly suggest to go for automatic update as it will not just only update your Mac but also it will update all other software version and will also look for any security vulnerability.
To begin with the installation process user can just run the update by clicking on the Software Update link under Apple menu. When you will hit on Software Update link, it will automatically start looking for updates and once it will find the update file it will show on Software Update window as New software is available for your computer, here just select the file and click on Install button which is available on the right hand side of the Software Update window.
