The Latest Sims 4 Update on PC and Mac Addresses a Few Bugs

Yesterday, a new update was rolled out to Sims 4 on PC and Mac, addressing numerous small fixes.

The update (version 1.62.67.1020 on PC and 1.62.67.1020 on Mac) will now be live for anyone playing on those platforms. The patch doesn’t apply to anyone playing Sims 4 on Xbox One or PS4.

For Mac users, the biggest update is improved compatibility with newer versions of macOS – always good news. On both Mac and PC, there’s been some small improvements made to the main menu, and a number of random errors have been addressed.
