How to Check Software Updates in macOS Mojave

I am using Mojave beta on my MacBook Pro and I am certainly enjoying this new experience. With macOS Mojave, my Mac has a brand new dark-mode and it has become even more functional than ever before. That said, apart from bringing new features, the new desktop operating system from Apple has also relocated some of the old features which might irk some users. One of those features is the user’s ability to check for software updates. To help users grapple with this change, in this article, we are going to show you how you can check for software updates in macOS Mojave:

Check for Software Updates in macOS Mojave

Before macOS Mojave, users could easily check for the app as well as operating system updates by visiting the Mac App Store app. However, in Mojave, Apple has changed that. Now, the Mac App Store’s “Updates” section only shows the app updates and the software updates for the operating system has been relocated. That said, it is still fairly easy to access and check for software updates and this is how you can do that:

  1. Click on the Apple logo on the top left corner of your desktop and then click on “System Preferences”.
