How to Download and Install macOS 10.14 Mojave [macOS 10.14 Mojave: How to Download and Install]macOS Mojave supports all Mac models that are compatible with macOS High Sierra, with the exception of Mac Pro (Late 2013) models. The following steps will help you download and install macOS 10.14 Mojave on your machine.
Get an Apple ID
Before you can download and install macOS, you’ll need an Apple ID. Follow these steps to set one up for free in the Create Apple ID section of the iTunes Store or App Store app on your device:
– Enter your first name, last name, country or region, email address, password (Apple requires at least 8 characters), security questions (a different answer for each question) and birthday information – Choose whether or not you want an iCloud account as well as iTunes or App Store content; you may need this information later in the process when downloading updates for your new Mac. – To prove your identity online with two forms of identification, upload a photo of yourself holding a current piece of government-issued identification. For example, a driver’s license or passport that includes both the front and back sides.
– Upload a photo of yourself holding a recent piece of government-issued identification that includes both the front and back sides. For example, a driver’s license or passport.
– You must agree to provide accurate date of birth and billing information before you will be able to complete the setup process.
– When you’re finished setting up your Apple ID, confirm it by clicking Agree in the Terms & Conditions box on screen before tapping Agree again in the Agreement box below it so that both boxes are green.
– Agree to provide accurate date of birth and billing information before completing setup process
After you complete these steps, you’ll be able to download macOS from Apple’s App Store on your iPhone or iPad using your Apple ID.
Prepare your Mac for installation
First, you’ll need a Mac running one of the following operating systems: macOS High Sierra (10.13), macOS Sierra (10.12), or OS X El Capitan (10.11). Next, get your hands on the installer by downloading it from the Mac App Store app found on your computer or by purchasing a digital copy from the Apple store website.
Once downloaded, follow these steps to install macOS 10.14 Mojave:
First open up the application in Finder and then click Install. A few moments later, a new window will pop up asking for your Apple ID password—enter this before clicking Agree to begin installation. You’ll then be asked for an administrator’s password for your Mac—enter this as well before clicking Agree. You’ll now see two progress bars going back and forth until installation is complete; just wait patiently! Finally, when installation is finished you will be given two options—Restart or Resume—click on whichever option best suits your needs before closing out of this window.
Create a bootable installer with Disk Utility
To start with, you’ll need to download the operating system onto your computer from the Mac App Store. Once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll need a blank USB stick or external hard drive that is at least 8GB in size (and formatted as a Mac OS Extended (Journaled) file system). You’ll also need a copy of Disk Utility which is free from the Mac App Store. Insert your USB stick or external hard drive into an open port on your computer, then launch Disk Utility.
Select the USB device by clicking on its name in the left-hand column. In the main window, click Erase and make sure that Mac OS Extended (Journaled) is selected under Format. Make sure your name appears under Name before continuing.
Click Erase again to proceed with formatting; this will erase all data on the disk so make sure there’s nothing important on it before continuing! Next, select a volume format; Mac OS Extended (Journaled) should be selected by default but if not just select it now. Finally, click Erase one last time and wait for formatting to complete before removing your disk from the computer.
Use your bootable installer to upgrade
1) Click the apple icon in the top left corner of your screen and choose App Store
2) Click on Updates in the sidebar on the left of your screen
3) Scroll down until you see 10.14 which will be next to Mojave then click it and click on Download App. This will start downloading macOS 10.14 and automatically install it, so it is important not to do anything else with your Mac for now (If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type it in).
Wait for about half an hour before restarting your Mac because this could take a while depending on how fast your internet connection is. If you’re still running macOS High Sierra when the installation is complete, wait for about another 30 minutes for all of your data to sync. After that, you can restart your Mac and enjoy the new features!
In order to improve your privacy, make sure you select Don’t Send Usage Data To Apple when asked if you want to send usage data to Apple. You can change this setting in System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> Privacy -> Share Usage With Apple.
You should also turn on screen saver by going into System Preferences -> Desktop & Screen Saver -> Screen Saver; then selecting Never. This is a good way of keeping someone from walking up and seeing what’s on your screen as it locks after a certain amount of time. In addition, you might want to enable Find My Mac because this will allow you to locate or erase your Mac remotely with another device that has the Find My iPhone app installed.
Finally, install any updates for macOS which will be available via the App Store.
