Download Mac Os 10.11 Installer

 

The new OS from Mac is here in OS X El Capitan. Apple's 12th OS release is the OS X El Capitan.Named after a rock formation in the Yosemite National Park, USA, OS X El Capitan continues and focuses on stability, performance and security in which OS X Yosemite started. With this new OS, you can enjoy multitasking in full screen with Split View, control your desktop without overlapping with. There is still a chance to download the installation file if you have an access to a Mac (or virtual machine) running that operating system. For example, to get an installer for Lion, you may ask a friend who has Lion-operated Mac or, once again, set up a virtual machine running Lion.

Most of the time, you can re-download the current version of macOS via the Mac App Store, and older ones via these links:

However, I’ve run into a situation several times where the Software Update mechanism simply refuses to initiate a download:

Thankfully, macOS installers can be downloaded via Terminal in macOS Catalina. This command will download the most recent version of macOS, depositing it in your Applications folder:

softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer

The softwareupdate command has some neat tricks up its sleeve, as pointed out by Armin Briegel:

The --fetch-full-installer flag has a sub-flag: --full-installer-version which allows you to download a specific version.

During my testing in the Catalina beta version I was able to download 10.15, 10.14.6, 10.14.5, and 10.13.6. I was not able to test if 10.13.6 would download the hardware specific build of 10.13.6 for the 2018 MacBook Pro, since I do not have that hardware.

So, to pull 10.13.6 down, you’d use:

10.11Download mac os x el capitan installer

softwareupdate --fetch-full-installer --full-installer-version 10.13.6

I wish Apple would just have a support document up with direct downloads for all of this stuff, but this tool is not a bad alternative.
