Editors' Note: Apple has released two updates affecting Airport; you only need install one, following the guide below, or by using the Software Update utility (available in the Apple menu). Your OS build number can be found by choosing "About This Mac" in the Apple menu, and clicking once on "Version 10.x"

"For older OS, no Software Update anymore!"

April 06, 2013  |  By MacHesney

 |  Version: Apple Security Update 2006-005


Under 'Important Information' in the install process is sometimes a mention of incorporated updates.

For example, Security Update 2007-008 includes 2007-007; 2007-007 includes 2007-006 & 005, 2007-005 includes 2007-004.
Why Apple doesn't just state instead that 2007-008 includes 2007-004,5,6 & 7 is beyond me.


Apple Software Update does not work for older OS's.
Panther - no way.
Tiger - forget it.

A few Apple updates are replaced by other updates because they suck.
The installer will refuse to install some updates with a very vague reason given. System requirements are listed on the update webpage, not in the installer.


Owner of an old Apple - searching Apple downloads could take all day to come up with a list of updates not replaced by newer updates. Buy one of those update disks from a reputable seller.
