Following the public release of the latest update to iOS, Apple has also seen fit to update its other popular operating systems as well.
On Tuesday, Apple officially released the update to macOS Mojave 10.14.3, which is available as a free download for owners of supported devices. To update, macOS users simply need to open the System Preferences app –> Software Update and then follow the onscreen instructions to update. It is also possible to turn on Automatic Updates to have the system update on its own. This is a minor update for Apple’s desktop operating system and won’t be adding any major forward facing features for the end user.
In addition to macOS, Apple is also updating the Apple Watch to watchOS 5.1.3. This is also a free upgrade. To install, make sure that the Apple Watch is on its charger, has at least 50 percent battery life, and that the smartwatch is within range and connected to an iPhone. The new software can be downloaded by opening the Watch app, then opening General –> Software Update. From there, follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation. This is also a minor update that shouldn’t be adding any major new features to the mix.
Finally, Apple TV owners with supported hardware can now download and install tvOS 12.1.2. The new software is available only for the fourth- and fifth-generation Apple TV set-top boxes. To update directly, head into Settings –> Software Update and follow the onscreen instructions. Folks who have automatic updates turned on should see the hardware automatically install the new software in short order.
These latest updates follow the last public software update to each platform, which Apple released in late 2018.
