There’s an update to look out for in the Apple Snow Leopard version with the release of the latest Mac OS X 10.6.5. This version comes with a whole lot of improvements as Apple has been working on treating bugs and kinks in the Mac OS X 10.6 and the result is a product that promises an enhanced operating system experience to the user.

There have been improvements in the exchange support, to printer issues to syncing your address book with your Google contacts.

Apple has a page dedicated to the update giving users a pretty fair idea about what to expect. Here’s a glimpse at the features:

  • With the Microsoft Exchange servers, users will find apple mail to run more smoothly.
  • Contacts from the Address Book can be dragged to iCal easily and can be synced to the Google Calendar or Google Contacts.
  • The SSL with iDisk can be used to securely transfer files to and from the cloud.
  • HP printers join the band wagon of compatibility with Apple’s Airport Extreme; there is an improved level of performance in the Bluetooth for Apple’s Magic Trackpad too.
