Recent Software Updates
Many issues can be resolved by updating your software. Use Software Update to get your updates automatically.
Using standalone installers from Apple Support
Sometimes you might want to download a standalone installer instead of using Software Update.
- If you think you might need the same download again later
- You want to install the same software on multiple computers
- You have a faster Internet connection available from another computer
- You have no Internet connection on the computer that needs the update
Carefully read the download description before using a standalone installer. It lets you know if you need to apply other updates first. It also helps you determine if your Mac is compatible with the related download.
