When it’s time to install updates for the programs on your Mac, your computer will let you know. See this little number by the icon for the Apple App Store in the Dock? That’s letting me know that there are three updates that need to be installed.

When I click on it, the App Store will open. Click on Updates at the top of the screen.

You can then choose to install all of the updates or decide individually.
