Chapter 7. Working with Applications > Using Software Update

Using Software Update

Software Update is a rather elegant feature that Apple carried over from earlier versions of Mac OS. From the moment you installed OS X, the Software Update application has been keeping an eye on all of your applications. Based on a schedule you set, Software Update checks a central Web site to see if there are any updates for OS X system files or any of the applications you have installed (see “Task: Scheduling Software Updates” later in this chapter).

If the application finds an update, Software Update pops up on the Dock, giving you the option to download and install the updates.
