2. Access Software Update:

  • In the sidebar of the System Settings window, scroll down (if needed) and click on Software Update.

3. Check for updates:

  • The Software Update window will automatically check for available updates for your Mac’s operating system (macOS) and other Apple software.

4. Install updates (if available):

  • If updates are available, you will see a list of them displayed.
  • You can review details about each update by clicking the information icon (ⓘ) next to it.
  • To install the updates, click the Update Now button.

5. Enter administrator password (if prompted):

  • If you’re not logged in as an administrator on your Mac, you will be prompted to enter your administrator password to proceed with the installation.

6. Wait for the installation to complete:

  • The download and installation process may take some time, depending on your internet speed and the size of the updates.
  • Your Mac may restart one or more times during the installation.

Additional options:

  • Automatic updates: You can enable automatic updates for macOS and app updates by checking the corresponding boxes in the Software Update window.
  • Specific version download: If you’re looking to install a specific macOS version, you may need to download it from the Apple Support Downloads website: https://support.apple.com/downloads/.

It’s always recommended to keep your Mac updated for optimal performance, security, and compatibility with the latest software.
