How to Schedule updates
In your Software Update window found in System Preferences you are allowed to schedule automatic updates. The Apple OS by default does a weekly update, but allows you to change the intervals to monthly or daily if it your preference. Scheduled checks for updates available can also be turned off completely. Apple’s Operating Systems of the OS X v10.5 and later will allow you to download only very important updates automatically and you will be reminded when it is ready to be installed.
Software updates can also be hidden if you choose not to update certain features that are not important to you. A standalone installer is often more useful for Apple OS when you need to do installing on multiple computers and need portable files, have no Internet connection or have faster internet connection on a computer other than the one you want to update.
