Maintaining a MacBook Air and Solving Problems

Keep App Store Software Current

Software developers regularly update their applications to improve them and to solve bugs. Apple not only issues updates to its applications, but more important, to OS X and the other system software that makes a MacBook Air work.

To keep your MacBook Air running well and to reduce security risks, keep your applications and system software current. You can use the Updates feature in the App Store application to keep your software up-to-date, and you can set the App Store preferences in the System Preferences application to check for updates automatically.
