    Good day,

    Does anyone know if it's possible to get an email as soon as a security update comes out for OSX?

    I know it is possible with Microsoft so I thought that Apple would have that same kind of service.

    Thanks

    No, but you can arrange for Tim Cook to personally deliver them to your door

    :roll eyes:

    Seriously, when Apple issues an update, it will pop-up in App Store

    There is a workaround to get what you want... go to this page and grab the link to the "downloads and updates" RSS feed, then use that feed to make a recipe on Iftt to send yourself an email when that RSS feed posts an update.

    You will need to sign up for a free Iftt account.

    Yes, there is a list: https://lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo/security-announce

    Note that the Apple list is a bit different than Microsoft's. The Apple list only sends out notice after a security update is released but it does provide the full security details for a given update.

    I always just wait until the update (That includes security updates for/Airport/OSX, etc) is on the update site. That is when Apples allows us to download anyway. :D
