Updating your mac
At the top of the window you’ll see the updates that are available to install.
The App Store in mac OS will automatically let you know when updates are available, but it won’t install them without your authorization (you can also change these settings, which we’ll get to in a moment).
While it’s possible that installing an update may cause an issue, it’s also possible that not installing the update could cause problems.
This is a good reminder that anything can fail and you should have a backup strategy in place.
If you need more space for a wireless update, you can update using i Tunes or delete content manually from your device.
A common concern that is often shared is that updating apps and especially operating systems will cause a problem.
Often times this fear is caused by the past experience of an issue after doing an update or hearing stories from others.
Next week we’ll dive into updating software on i OS (i Phone and i Pad) in particular.
Another way to think about updates is it’s like driving a car.
However, if you’re a bit more hesitant, you can wait a week or two to see if others run into any problems and then continue on performing updates.
