Download OS X Lion 10.7.3 Build 11D16 [Developers Only]
Apple has seeded OS X Lion 10.7.3 (11d16) to developers as the third update to the new Mac Operating system on Tuesday. In its release note , Apple said there are no known issues and that the update focuses on iCloud document storage, AddressBook, iCal and Mail. OS X Server 10.7.3 is bundled up with the new build focusing on the same areas.
Previously the OS X Lion 10.7.2 update was released in October with iCloud Support. Downloading this would allow you to sync photos, apps, documents and music between all your Apple devices powered by the iCloud storage platform Apple rolled out earlier this year. OS X Lion 10.7.3 is available for both Lion and Lion Server configurations.
Developers who choose to upgrade will not be able to revert back to the previous build after updating to OS X Lion 10.7.3. Apple’s full release notes follow after the break.
