Mac App Store: Update OS X and apps

Update OS X and apps

App Store keeps track of updates for OS X and apps you purchased.

The Updates button in the toolbar and the App Store icon in the Dock show the total number of OS X and app updates available for downloading.

Note:

If you disable Spotlight on your startup volume, no updates appear.

  1. Click Updates in the toolbar.
  2. For updates in the list, you can:
    • Download and install all of the updates at once, or download and install a specific update.

      Some OS X updates can be installed individually instead of all at once. Click the More link under an OS X update to view update information and reveal whether individual updates are available.

      All of the updates listed on the Updates page are free.

    • Pause, resume, or cancel app updates. You can't pause, resume, or cancel OS X updates.
