As with any update process, it's recommended that you back up your Raspberry Pi just in case. Fortunately, we have a guide for that!

Check for updates

Open the OctoPrint interface in your browser, as you normally would. If there's an update available, a modal will appear automatically.

Perform the update

Click Update now to begin the update process. Then, click Proceed to confirm.

Reload your browser

OctoPrint will prompt you when it's time to reload your browser. If you run into any issues, simply restore your SD card backup using an application such as Etcher.

You're all done!

Because your MacBook is so important for all that you do in a day, it is important to take good care of your Mac battery, monitor your Mac's battery health, and check the cycle count of your Mac's battery when to determine if your Mac needs a new battery. This might sound like a lot of maintenance, but checking your Mac's cycle count is an easy way to determine if your Mac needs a new battery, and it's actually incredibly simple. A battery's maximum cycle count is how many charge cycles your Mac can complete before the battery is no longer able to perform and will need replacing. In this guide, I show you how to check your Mac battery's cycle count and determine if your battery needs to be replaced.
