How to find the Mac’s Software Update options



In macOS 10.14 (Mojave) the Mac’s options for software updates are in System Preferences/Software Update. In Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite), the options for software updates are in System Preferences/App Store. In Mac OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion), the options for software updates are in System Preferences/Software Update. Apple seems to still be figuring out what’s best.

Regardless of where they are, the settings are worth looking at. See below.

App Store options
Software Update settings in macOS Yosemite
Software Update settings in macOS Mojave
After clicking the Advanced… button in Software Update settings in macOS Mojave

Generally speaking, the options shown here are the right ones. If you’d rather change them at least now you know how to find them.
