When updating, best to update OS first or apps first?  



I haven't been in the App store on my late 2013 MBP running Mojave for a while and it's nagging me to do some updates.

I have 4 apps that need updating plus the OS.  What's the best way round to do this?  I have always done OS first, then apps but maybe I',m wrong... what say you guys?


If you click Update All, App Store will manage the whole process.


@earthsaver’s process is definitely a fine way to go these days, and will take care of it all for you.

That said, and for a general practice (including non-app-store apps), I would update apps first, then macOS. In the (rare) event that an app won’t launch with the new version, you save yourself the trouble by updating the app first.


Even I would update the apps first and then OS because I need to see that my apps sync perfectly with new OS update.
