Apple Music update, which will now keep playing similar songs, once you reach the end of a song or a playlist. The update may not seem like much, but I can say is a great feature, especially when you are traveling.

To Update macOS

To update your Mac just go into system preferences -> software updates and select update to your Mac.  The update itself is 6.5 gig in size, so it may take a little while to download.

Final Thought 

Keeping your computer up to date is always recommended. As always said, Consider updating your software in the same idea as taking your car to get its oil change.
