OS X 10.10.3 released with new Photos app and more

As expected, Apple released OS X 10.10.3 today via the Mac App Store. The latest update includes a new Photos app to replace iPhoto, along with new Emojis and a bunch of other improvements.

We already took a tour of Photos earlier this year, but here’s what it offers in case you need a quick refresh. The new app lets you organize your pictures by time or location, and breaks everything into tabs labeled Photos, Shared, Albums and Projects. It also saves everything to iCloud at full resolution so you can access you photos wherever you go. Apple added new photo-editing tools as well. Finally, you can create your own digital photo books or purchase printed copies of your pictures.

OS X 10.10.3 adds 300 new Emojis, meaning Apple is finally catching up to the latest Unicode update. It also adds spotlight suggestions, improvements to Safari, better Wi-Fi connectivity, a fix for some Bluetooth related issues, and more reliable screen sharing.

That’s everything for now, though we may uncover even more improvements once we start combing through OS X 10.10.3. You can grab the new software yourself by booting up the Mac App Store and clicking the Updates tab.
