On Wednesday, as initially predicted, OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 has been officially released to the public after a long run in beta stages.

The new update for most Mac machines brings with it a new Photos application for OS for keeping your photo library organized and accessible from iCloud. The new application replaces the functionality of iPhoto and Aperture completely in the new operating system and Aperture will be removed from the Mac App Store shortly despite still being available at the time of this writing.

Other improvements in this update are a way to modify the skin tones of the Emojis that you send to people, and two-step verification for Google internet accounts for additional security. SpotLight also sees improvements with look up searches.

Apple touts a wide variety of bug fixes and performance improvements too, so this update is recommended for all users and is available free of cost in the Mac App Store under the Updates tab. It comes with an OS X Yosemite Recovery Upgrade 1.0 update, which improves the reliability of restoring from a Time Machine backup.
