How to update you Mac with the latest patches if you’re running 10.14 Mojave or newer

If you’re using running OS 10.14 Mojave, OS 10.15 Catalina, or newer, then you need to know how to update your Mac with the latest patches. Apple has now moved OS updates and upgrades, along with those for iTunes and Safari, into System Preferences. The video above will show you how to do just that. If you prefer texts and pictures, keep reading.

  1. Open System Preferences on your Mac. If it’s not in your Dock, you can quickly get to it by clicking the Apple icon in the top left corner of your screen, and hitting the “System Preferences” option. screen-shot-2019-12-23-at-10.34.08-am

  3. The Mac will quickly check for updates and show you a list of updates available.  If there are no updates, then the Mac will say there are no updates pending.  Screen Shot 2019-12-23 at 10.35.08 AM
  4. If there are any pending updates, you can hit the “Update” button, and begin installing the updates.  Some updates may require a reboot, and the Mac will warn you beforehand if you’re about to apply an update that needs a reboot.
