The company said that customers need to get Java directly from Oracle
Old versions of Oracle’s Java software are being deleted from internet browsers on the computers of Apple’s customers over security warnings.
The company will remove the software when its customers install the latest update to its Mac operating system.
Previously, Apple, which included Java with installations of Mac OS X, announced this move on its support site.
The company said that customers need to obtain Java directly from Oracle if they want to access web content written the widely used programming language.
Apple said: "This update uninstalls the Apple-provided Java applet plug-in from all Web browsers."
Besides stripping browsers of the Java plug-in, the company also removes the Java Preferences application which is no longer required for applet setting configuration.
Apart from Java patches, Apple beefed OS X security by uninstalling old browser plug-ins for the software.
In April this year, Apple’s long standing (and false) reputation for being ‘malware free’ was taken a huge blow as a new Trojan, Flashfake, has infected Apple computers worldwide.
In July this year, Apple had launched OS X Mountain Lion, the ninth major release of OS X, a desktop operating system for Mac computers.
Two years ago Oracle had agreed to take the responsibility when Apple revealed that it would one day stop providing Java software to Mac customers.
