The latest version of the Operating System by Apple for Mac is here and it is free and easy to install.
At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference of 2018, the company changed the name of its operating system for Mac. First, the name of Northern California’s beautiful mountain range was given to the MacOS but now, Apple has decided to change it to the famed desert of Golden state. After giving the names of the mountain ranges like; El Captain, Yosemite, High Sierra, and Sierra – the newest version of the Mac operating system (10.14 version) has been named after California’s Mojave Desert.
As of now, you can upgrade your Mac Operating System to macOS Mojave free of cost! This version offers its users a basket full of new and exciting features. The features that we loved are; Dark Mode, Stacks, new and enhanced Finder, and much more.
How to Update to Mojave OS?

Alternatively, you can also press the Apple icon in the upper left corner of your screen, select About This Mac, and then select the Software Update button, which will launch the Mac Program Store app and prompt it to scan for updates. Also, the Purchased tab of the Mac App Store allows you to watch the progress of your upgrade so you can check how much of it is done.
After your Mojave OS has finished downloading, all you need to do is follow the steps of the installation wizard to get your Operating system up and running. Also, for future Mojave OS updates, keep in mind that Apple has moved system updates to a new location, previously it was located in the app store.
