Apple recently released a new version of its Mac operating system, mac OS Sierra (version 10.12).

If you're using an older version of OS X, updates are handled through the Software Update utility.

Tech observers were seriously taken aback when Apple took several days to address a security flaw in OS X 10.9 Mavericks after quickly fixing the same bug in i OS.

For example, the latest versions of Chrome and Firefox won't run on anything older than Mavericks.

Microsoft Auto Update makes sure your copy of Office will always be up-to-date with the latest security fixes and improvements.

Then, there’s Watch unlocking for Mac, there’s one-click Apple Pay, tabs in apps, and cross-device copypasting. So, if you were on the fence about upgrading to Sierra, our advice is yes, do upgrade. If you’re running an OS version like Lion (OS X 10.7), you’re looking into a lot of upgrading before getting Sierra.

To upgrade to Sierra from, say, Mavericks, you’ll have to consequently upgrade to Yosemite and then to El Capitan first.

Some early Intel Macs released in 2006 are stuck with Snow Leopard (10.6), which hasn't received security updates since the release of Mavericks three years ago.
