I have an iMac, 21.5 inch (Late 2025) desktop Computer, MacOS Mojave Version 10.14.3.that just automatically updated, which I assume was GarageBand. When I looked at the App Store App on the iMac, I found that App Store Layout had changed. The old App Store App use to have an UpdateButton on the top of its display, which when selected would perform a search/display of Pending updates and list past Updates that were installed. The new App Store no longer shows this Update Button, but does Show 'Update' in a left Panel after I sign in with my Apple ID. I noticed that there was a Software 'Update' button when I brought up "About this Mac" under the Apple icon, which told me my iMac was up to date and there were "no pending updates available". Is this what I have to deal with now? Would you advise me not to auto load update Apps?

B,

Sometimes, I wish I still had my old G3 B/W. Every time I boot up the iMac, there is something new I need to figure out. Mojave is so advanced. It is nice, but every time Apple makes a change, they issue a patch and they system enhancements and performance improvements made, but they never go into detail. Thats what I get for wanting something new. H

How is it up north?
Happy Holidays and the Best for a Profitable New Year!

Cold & wet up here.

I haven't seen a purposeful change in the OS since 10.4.11

BTW, you can edit your 2025 typo if you want.

I've seen purposeful changes. Like the removal of telnet and the FTP server from OS X. I'm stuck on Sierra until I can afford to get an Interarchy license (other things come first in real life). I know damn well Apple removed the FTP server because people were using FTP clients to transfer/sync Android phones to their Macs instead of buying iPhones and the walled garden. And as Apple refuses to even try to make a good MTP (media transfer protocol) driver, we're stuck with Android File Transfer, which is a bigger piece of shit than Windows 10 is, if you can imagine that.

Sorry, I don't have Mojave to see, but found this Crazy Deal...
Quote:
The New macOS Mojave Software Update

To find the Mojave software update tool, you’ll need to launch System Preferences (the gray gear icon located by default in your Dock). If you have Mojave configured to automatically check for software updates, it will let you know if one or more are available with a notification badge on the System Preferences icon.
Clicking the System Preferences icon when it is displaying a software update notification will send you directly to the Software Update preference pane. If you back out to the main System Preferences window, you’ll also see a notification badge there when pending updates are available.
The actual Mojave software update interface is relatively simple. When you launch it, it will do a quick check for any available updates and display the results. Clicking Update Now will install any pending updates. Just be sure to save any open work before clicking this button, as many software updates require a reboot.
