macOS Sierra 10.12.2 and CCID upgrade

In macOS Sierra 10.12.2 Apple upgraded the CCID driver from version 1.4.24 (present in macOS Sierra 10.12 and 10.12.1) to version 1.4.25.

See "New version of libccid: 1.4.25" to get the list of changes.


The CCID driver 1.4.25 was released September, 30th 2016. And the macOS Sierra 10.12.2 upgrade was released December 14, 2016 so 2.5 months later.

That is a good news to see Apple integrating new versions of the CCID driver in "minor" operating system upgrades. It was already the case with macOS El Capitan (see "OS X El Capitan and CCID evolution")

Next upgrade

The current CCID version is 1.4.26 from 7 January 2017. I expect to see this version in the next minor Sierra upgrade: 10.12.3.
