Step 1: go to the App Store

Log into your Mac and go to the app store. You can easily open it by selecting the Apple icon in the upper left corner of the MacOS screen and then selecting the App Store.

Step 2: check your updates

MacOS App Store Menu

When you first open the App Store, look at the menu on the left side. Towards the bottom, you should see a section called Upgrades. Navigate there to check the status of available app updates.

Step 3: update Safari if available

Pending updates on the MacOS App Store

The Updates section is divided into several parts according to the status of your applications. There may be a section called Slopes for applications that are queued to be updated, but need authorization or more time to complete.

There could also be a section called Available updates for applications that have available updates that have not been started yet. You should be able to see a section called Recently updated to check the latest updates that have been applied.

Look for Safari in the Pending or Updates Available sections. If you see it, look for a blue button call To update, to the right of the application. If available, select it to begin your Safari update.

Problems? SIf it seems like something is wrong with Safari, such as a pending update that cannot be completed or a notice that says something like Safari cannot be updated, then you should try restarting your Mac and updating again to see if this helps. If it doesn’t work, you should check for macOS updates. If your version of MacOS has lagged behind the latest Safari updates, it may not be available until you do a more comprehensive update.

Remember, you can usually use this full macOS update method to update Safari at any time. However, since a MacOS update requires you to back up your data and log out of everything beforehand, it is not always a feasible option if you find yourself in the middle of a long-term job. Updating Safari alone may be a better option.

Step 4 (optional): add Safari extensions

Safari extensions on the App Store

If you are excited about a new extension that has recently arrived in Safari, a standard update will not include it; you will have to add it yourself. In the App Store, select the option Categories: on the menu. From the list that appears, select Safari extensions.

Here, you will be able to see the latest extensions and add them to Safari as you prefer.

Reinstalling Safari

Note that you can choose to remove Safari entirely. If Safari appears to have a bug or performance issue, removing the app and reinstalling it is one way to update everything while fixing the issue.

However, the only way to reinstall Safari this way is to completely reinstall MacOS. You won’t lose any data, but it will take longer to do so, so always be careful when removing Safari.

A note on Safari on Windows

Yes, you can technically download Safari on Windows. However, since version 5, it has stopped working on Windows, so there will be no updates available for it. That also means that the security and performance of the Windows version have fallen by the wayside, so we don’t suggest using this app at all.
