install OSX

Since OS-X Mavericks (10.9)  Apple have been releasing their OS X upgrades for free. This means if you have any version of OS X newer than 10.9 then you can upgrade it to the latest version for free.  There are three ways you can upgrade.

  1.  Download the Installer from Apple directly to the computer that you want to install the new OS X onto.
  2.  Take your computer into the nearest Apple Store and they will do the upgrade for you.
  3.  Make a  USB thumb drive installer that you can plug into your computer to upgrade it.

Method 1 is Apple’s suggestion method, but if you have more than one computer it requires you to download the OS X update more than once.  Method 3 gives you a thumb drive that you can use multiple times to install OSX,  and you can even boot off it  in an emergency if your hard drive crashes.  It is very handy to have a bootable version of  the latest OSX on a thumb drive lying around  So I suggest option three
