  • I have this same question. I want to upgrade to the new Sierra system, but when I check for updates it says I have the newest version as well. What do I need to do to update? I tried searching the apps for Yosemite...to update in a series of steps to get to the latest version of Sierra, but could not find it in my search. Please help.
