    Currently, My iMac is on Mavericks 10.9.5. When Yosemite was first available, I downloaded the installer (10.10.0) but did not install. Now 10.10.1 becomes available and I am considering direct upgrade to 10.10.1 from Mavericks. Do I need to upgrade to 10.10.0 first then to 10.10.1? Is the 10.10.1 from Apple Store a complete installer?

    Far from here

    Yes it is. You do not need to install 10.10.0 first.
    (you will need to download Yosemite again to get the full 10.10.1 installer)

    If the 10.10.0 file that you have is still usable :
    then install 10.10 first and then ota to 10.10.1

    otherwise download yosemite again. It will be 10.10.1 direct..

    You could do it either way.

    If you still have the 10.10 installer, you could use that to install yosemite and then get the 10.10.1 delta update from http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1779 which is only 311.8 MB and use it to update.

    Otherwise, you can get the full installer again from the mac app store - which would now be a full installer for 10.10.1, but that is 5.17 GB.

    So it would be quicker for you to install 10.10 and update to 10.10.1 rather than wait for the 5.17 GB to download again.

    Or simply update using the installer he has and then 10.10.1 will be available as an update. This isn't rocket science, just use the updater.

    Thanks everyone!

    I think I will upgrade to 10.10.0 then update to 10.10.1.

    Agreed.... No need to do so... simply download the 10.10.1 file from the Mac App Store.... There are less reasons for anything to go wrong, compared to incrementally updating... i.e. 10.10 through 10.10.1...

    Simples... :)

    Save time by using the 10.10 installer which has already been downloaded and is readily available. Only need to download the 10.10.1 update file instead of the full 10.10.1 installer.
