macOS Mojave Download and Install
You can click this link to download macOS Mojave. This link will lead you to the macOS Mojave installer page in the App Store. After the installer is downloaded, it will ask you whether to install it. If your device’s macOS is lower than macOS Mojave, you can agree and it will start installing macOS Mojave on your device.
If your device’s macOS is higher than macOS Mojave, you need to decline. Otherwise, the installer will be deleted. In this case, you can install macOS Mojave through the following steps:
- Prepare a memory stick with large enough space and then reformat it in Disk Utility.
- Open Terminal and input the command “sudo /Applications/Install macOS Mojave.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia –volume /Volumes/MyVolume”. “MyVolume” should be replaced with the number on the USB drive that you have plugged into your system. Then, a bootable installer will be created.
- Connect the bootable installer to your Mac.
- Open System Preferences and click Startup Disk.
- Choose the external drive with your installer as the startup disk and click Restart.
- Your Mac will shut down and restart in Recovery
- You will need to connect to Wi-Fi because your Mac will need to connect to the internet during this process. Access Wi-Fi settings from the Wi-Fi menu.
- Select Reinstall macOS from Utilities.
