Keep your Mac up to date
Periodically, Apple releases updates to your computer’s software (which can include important security updates).

You can also check the App Store in the Apple menu to see if there are any updates.
Check for updates manually
To get your updates, choose Apple menu > App Store, then click Updates.
Set your Mac to check for updates automatically
