MacOS: Software Update Notifications

Last updated

When the university pushes updates for software on university computers, Mac computers will receive a notification box in the top right corner about the available updates. While these updates are voluntary for a period of time, they will become mandatory depending on the security risks involved. It is recommended to update the software when notified, as updating them later may interrupt your work.

To run the updates:

  1. From the Desktop, navigate to the Go menu and select Applications.
  2. Click the Updates tab.
  3. Click Update on each item you want to update
    OR
    Click Update All.
    NOTE: You will be prompted to exit out of the application if it is still running.
