  • Asked about:  Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

  • First, OS 10.10 was free. Never had a "price".

    Second, both OS 10.9 and OS 10.10 are discontinued and not available. Apple discontinued those versions because any Mac that can support OS 10.9 or OS 10.10 can also support OS 10.11 (the current version, which is also free.)

    The only other OS X versions still available from Apple are OS 10.6, OS 10.7, OS 10.8. They cost US$20 each.

    You must have Snow Leopard (OS 10.6.8) or later in order to upgrade to later versions of OS X.

    To go to OS 10.11, use the App Store app that is installed with OS 10.6.8 and later versions.

    (To upgrade to OS 10.7 or OS 10.8, go to the online Apple Store to purchase a redemption code which then will let you download and install through the App Store app.)
