You love using your Mac to get things done, but there’s nothing more annoying than being in the middle of an email when you see a gray popup appear that says “your Mac will restart,” right? Well, believe it or not, there’s a way to stop updates on Mac with just two steps.
First, to stop updates on Mac, you’ll need to click the word “details” in the gray popup box. Usually, you’ve selected the “restart” button, which Apple wants you to do but won’t help you continue about your way. After pressing “details,” you’ll be brought to the page that explains what the update is all about. If you want to stop updates on Mac, though, you won’t need to worry about the details of the update.
The final step to stop updates on Mac is to select the red “x” box in the detail popup to click out of the details. At this point, you’ll delay the update for another time. Remember, you’re not stopping the update in the sense of killing it; you’re simply delaying the update until an opportune time.
