How to update your Mac

Use the Mac App Store to install the update. It's a good idea to back up up your Mac before updating. Some updates become available only after installing other updates. You should install all available updates, and allow installation to complete without interruption. You can also get this update from the Apple Support Downloads site. You might have unexpected results if third-party OS X modifications have been installed, or you modified OS X in other ways.
