Upgrade to macOS MojaveChris Ridzon
Apple has released the latest version of its Macintosh operating system. Called macOS Mojave, this is version 10.14 of the OS, and is packed with new useful features and several new upgrades including Dark Mode, Dynamic Desktop, Finder enhancements, and a lot more.
But wait, before you install Mojave… Please read on to make sure you are ready to upgrade. First, you should back up your Mac’s data, just in case something goes wrong during the installation. (If you do not have a proper backup or not 100% sure how to backup, please contact Basics-n-Beyond right away before moving forward). Once you have a completed and verified backup, you need to connect to a reliable (and preferably reasonably fast) internet connection to download the software. The installation can take several minutes to download on a fast internet connection and several minutes to install, so prepare accordingly.
When you upgrade to macOS Mojave, you’ll get a host of new features inspired by its most powerful users but designed for everyone. Stay better focused on your work in Dark Mode. Automatically organize files using Stacks. Take more kinds of screenshots with less effort. Try four handy new built-in apps, and discover even more in the redesigned Mac App Store. Now you can get more out of every click. Best of all, upgrading is free and easy.
