updates are useful and I recommend that you download and update your
software when new versions
become available. Apple and other software companies are constantly working
to improve their products and when they release a software update it’s
for a good reason. So, to get to software update, simply go to the apple
menu and click software update. You will need to have internet access
for this to work. If
your computer is up to date, it will simply say you’re up to date,
otherwise it will give you a list of things that need updating. Most
of the time a restart is required when updating so be prepared for that.
Simply click install items, you will be asked for your password
and then the computer will download all of the updates and restart to
install them. You can also manage the settings of your software updater.
To do that, in software update, go to preferences, and here you will
be able to tell the computer to automatically look for updates every
week or daily or monthly. I prefer weekly. Now some people don’t
want the task automated at all. Some people find it annoying or are freaked
out when the software update just randomly pops on to tell them they
have updates. So if you uncheck check for updates, you will turn that
off. Now, I don’t recommend doing that unless you can remember
to periodically manually check for updates. In the preference window
you can also click here to see a list of the last updates you installed
and when. So there you have it, that’s software update. I hope
you stay up to date!
