If you own a MacBook from 2014 or earlier and want to upgrade to the latest version of macOS, you may find that you can’t download the latest updates from the App Store. Instead, you’ll need to download the update from the macOS download website, which can be a bit tricky. In this blog post, we’ll show you how to upgrade to OS X 10.9 and install macOS Sierra on your MacBook.
To get started, go to the macOS download website and download Google Chrome if you haven’t already. Once you have Chrome installed, you can open the macOS download link and find shortcuts to the App Store to download OS X 10.9 or any other version of macOS.
One of the challenges you may face when downloading OS X 10.9 is that you’ll need to type in your Apple ID and password, but it may not accept it. This is because Apple IDs now require two-factor authentication, which cannot be turned off. To get around this, you can download the DMG version of macOS Sierra instead.
Once you’ve downloaded macOS Sierra, double-click on the DMG file to install the installation application in the application folder. During the installation process, your data will not be erased, but it’s always a good idea to back up your data for safety purposes. After the installation process is complete, your MacBook will restart several times.
Once you’ve upgraded to macOS Sierra, you can go back to the macOS download website and download OS X 10.9. Click on the download link and continue the installation process. After a while, your MacBook will be completely updated to OS X 10.9 with all your data intact.
In conclusion, upgrading your MacBook to OS X 10.9 is a bit of a challenge, but with the right steps, it’s definitely possible. By following these instructions, you can upgrade to the latest version of macOS and enjoy all the new features and improvements that come with it.
