macOS Sierra 10.12.2 final version has arrived for everyone to download. But it’s not a feature packed release at all. Instead, it focuses on under the hood changes and patches up a lot of bugs and performance related issues which users have been facing for quite a long time.

Installing Over the Air (OTA)

Like any other macOS update, Sierra 10.12.2 is available to download over the air. The process is absolutely simple to follow too. Start off by connecting your Mac to a WiFi network. Once done, launch the Mac App Store and then click on ‘Updates.’ macOS 10.12.2 will pop up in a few seconds, ready to be downloaded. Click on the ‘Update’ button next to the available update to download. Once the download is complete, you’ll be asked to install it, which will, of course, require you to restart your Mac.

While over the air route for installing updates is absolutely safe, I would still recommend backing everything up using Time Machine or an external hard drive. This ensures things are on the safer side of the fence at any given time.

Also, I have added a link to a tutorial below that lets you do a clean install without a USB drive. It’s perfect for situations where you do not want to create much fuss and want things done quickly and promptly. But remember, it requires you to have a fast Internet connection at hand otherwise it will take ages to download and install. If you are final with that, then you can go ahead regardless.
