How Do I Turn Off Mac Software Update Notifications?


Is there a way to disable the annoying software update message on a Mac?
- Asked by Stewart S. February 12th, 2019


Yes, it is possible to disable the Software Update notifications that regularly appear on a Mac. Open the System Preferences via the Apple menu at the top left corner of the screen and then navigate to the Software Update tab. Click on the Advanced button and uncheck the option that reads "Check for updates". You may need to enter an administrator password for the changes to take effect. Click OK when done to save your changes.
