    Does the new macOS update System Preference allow me to download an update, save it and update later?
    In other words, can I download the update once and use it to update multiple Macs?

    Thanks in Advance — GetRealBro

    Yes, it seems so: I had to ask the download to proceed after downloading.
    ;JOOP!

    You sure can. You can download something called a combo update from Apples website. These updates contain all in-release updates, so a Mac running, say 10.13 can be updated to 10.13.6 with just one update.

    The one for macOS Mojave 10.14.2 can be found here: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1987

    You can always google for these combo updates, when Apple releases an update. Just make sure to only download from Apples website :)

    You are welcome.
    I think the combo update for 10.14.2 will show up, the previous update for 10.14.1 is there. Might just take Apple a little time to update that part of their site.

    I looked for a 10.14.2 "combo updater" this morning, but it doesn't seem to be posted yet.
    Should become available before too much longer.
