Apple has unveiled the latest version of its Mac operating system: macOS Big Sur. The new software contains tweaks to make macOS better-looking and more streamlined, along with privacy updates. The urgent update that Apple released Monday plugs a hole in the iMessage software that allowed hackers to infiltrate a user's phone without the user clicking on any links, according to Citizen Lab.
If you're having difficulty finding or installing updates:
When you install iTunes or iCloud for Windows on your PC—or when you use Boot Camp Assistant to install Windows on your Mac—you get Apple Software Update for Windows.
Apple Software Update keeps the Apple applications on your PC up to date. It also delivers the latest Apple security and software updates to the Windows installation on your Mac.
Apple Software Update checks to see if any updates are available. Select the checkbox next to the updates that you want to install, click on the Install button, and then follow the onscreen instructions.
Apple Software Update for Windows runs once a week to check for updates. You can change this frequency to daily, weekly, monthly, or never in the application's preferences.
