Automatically download purchases in Mountain Lion

Patrick Stafford /

If you’re a keen Mac user then you’d know Apple just released the latest version of OS X Mountain Lion and there are a few key improvements.


For instance, you can set up your Mac to automatically download updates.


To do so, head to the System Preferences app, and then into the Software Update panel.


There, you can check the box for both automatically checking for updates and downloading newly available updates in the background.


You can also perform a manual check for updates in the same panel.
