Problems updating mac os x 10 5
However, we decided that it was worth a try (we needed to be able to get online as we were working from home that day).
We're lucky that we are able to create a hotspot from our mobile, plus we don’t have major limits on data on my contract, so we were able to create a Wi Fi network from the phone and use that to download the Yosemite update over 4G.
Because the Mac Book Air has no ethernet port we had no means to plug it into network without an adapter, which we don't own - a Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adaptor costs £25, as does a USB Ethernet Adaptor.
With no Wi Fi connection downloading the Yosemite update was going to be a challenge, and then we didn’t know for sure that it would do the trick - even when we were trying to download it we were aware of forum posts suggesting that the update didn't cure everyone’s Yosemite induced Wi Fi problems.
The update also includes a new 'look up' panel with Spotlight suggestions, and several other improvements.
