How Do I Get OS X 10.9 for My MacBook?

If you own a MacBook from 2014, you may have noticed that the latest macOS update is not compatible with your device. In this case, the maximum version you can use is Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks). So, how do you get OS X 10.9?

First, it’s important to note that the official App Store only offers the latest macOS version, which is not compatible with older devices. Therefore, you need to download Mac OS X 10.9 from a third-party website. However, you may face a challenge here because the macOS download link is not open.

To access the macOS download link, you can download and install Google Chrome. Once you have installed this browser, you should be able to open the macOS download link in the third-party website. The website provides shortcuts to the App Store to download Mac OS X 10.9 or any other version.

However, when you try to download Mac OS X 10.9, you need to enter your Apple ID and password. If you are using a two-factor authentication, you may find that the website always shows your Apple ID and password as incorrect. Unfortunately, you cannot turn off the two-factor authentication nowadays.

So, to download Mac OS X 10.9, you need to find a DMG version of the software. Once you have found it, you can download and install Mac OS X 10.12 Sierra, which does not require any Apple ID. After installing Sierra, you can double-click the DMG file of Mac OS X 10.9 and install it.

When you update your Mac to a new version, your data will not be erased by default. However, for safety purposes, it’s always a good idea to backup your data before installing a new version. During the installation process, your computer may restart several times.

Once the installation is complete, you will have updated your MacBook to Mac OS X 10.9 with all your data still intact. We hope that you found these steps helpful in updating your MacBook.
