As Apple's operating systems are starting to become a target for hackers, the Cupertino company has no choice other than increase the frequency of updates for its operating systems, and the latest release, OS X Mountain Lion, will receive an update which will enable automatic updates for users.
Something Microsoft has been doing for years with the Windows operating system. Apple's systems will now download and install necessary security patches and other fixes for OS X users in the background, without them even knowing of it.
OS X Mountain Lion will check for updates whenever the user is connected to the Internet and if an update is available, the system will download it and it will also install it at the time they were downloaded or when the machine is starting or finishing.
Overall, security experts have liked Apple's new move. Most of them say that the less users are asked if they want to update or not, the more up-to-date and secure their machines will be. Updates for OS X will, at first, be not daily as Windows', but Apple has confirmed that the frequency of them will increase significantly.
