Chapter 34. Maintaining Your System > Automating Software Updates

Automating Software Updates

Mac OS X enables you to receive software updates from Apple over the Internet, so you don't have to go looking for the updates to the operating system or Applecreated software. You can enable this feature in the Software Update Preferences pane of the System Preferences.

Running Software Updates Manually

Although automating software updates can take most of the burden off you, sometimes you want to force your system to search for recent updates rather than wait for your scheduled time. For example, when Apple releases a new version of a fun application such as iChat—see Chapter 18, “Using iChat AV”—you may be eager to get your hands on it.
