In macOS and the last few versions of OS X, Safari updates are packaged with the system updates. Whenever you update the system files on newer Mac computers, you're automatically installing any available Safari updates. On older versions of OS X, Safari updates need to be installed separately, and you'll need a recent version of the operating system to get the latest version of Safari.

Using macOS

  1. Open the Mac App Store. All software updates for macOS programs, including Safari, are handled through the App Store. This usually happens automatically, but you can check to see if there is a pending update available.
    • You can open the App Store from your Dock or by clicking the Apple menu and selecting "App Store.
    • If you are using OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) or earlier, see the next section.
  2. Click the "Updates" tab. This will display all of the programs that have updates available. You'll see the Updates tab at the top of the window.
  3. Click "Update" next to Safari or any system updates. If Safari has an update available, it will be listed here and you'll be able to start the update by clicking "Update." Oftentimes, Safari updates are included with system updates, which can also be installed from this screen.
  4. Ensure that automatic updates are enabled. You can make sure that you're always running the latest version of Safari by checking that automatic updates are enabled:
    • Click the Apple menu and select "System Preferences."
    • Click the "App Store" option in the System Preferences menu.
    • Check the "Automatically check for updates" box.
    • Check the boxes to enable automatic app and system updates. This will keep Safari always up-to-date.

Using OS X 10.8 and Earlier

  1. Click the Apple menu and select "Software Update." If you don't see the Software Update option, follow the steps in the previous section to check for updates through the App Store.
  2. Look for Safari in the list of available updates. If there is an update available for Safari, it will be listed here. All available updates should be selected automatically.
  3. Click the "Install # Items" button. This will install all selected updates, including any available Safari updates.
  4. Enter your administrator password. You'll be prompted to enter the password in order to download and install the available updates.
  5. Restart your computer if prompted. You may be asked to restart the computer after the updates have installed. This is necessary for certain updates to finish the installation process.
  6. Upgrade your OS X version to get the latest version of Safari. Safari 6.2.8 is the last version available in OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) and earlier. If you want the latest version of Safari, you'll need to update to OS X 10.10 (Yosemite), or macOS 10.12+ (Sierra). See Download macOS Sierra for details.
