Before macOS Mojave coming, the 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 “Updates” section available in the Mac App Store shows only the app updates and the software updates for the operating system has been relocated. Still, it is very easy to access and check for software updates and this is how you can do that:

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

Now, locate the new “Software Update” option and click on it.

Now, you have to see when your Mac last checked for system updates and manage your update settings.

Now, you have to enable either the “Automatically keep my Mac up to date” option which can be used to automatically download and install any software update that is released or you have to click on the “Advanced” button to configure how you want your system to handle updates.
