  • macOS Update—An incremental update to the previously released major version. For example, macOS Catalina 10.15.1 is an update to macOS Catalina 10.15

  • macOS Upgrade—A major upgrade to a new version of macOS that includes many new features. For example, macOS Catalina is an upgrade to macOS Mojave.
