Homebrew is a package manager for macOS. It allows you to manage the packages installed on your Mac mini M1 and provides a way to install additional software on your machine.

  1. Install Homebrew by running the following command:

    /bin/bash -c "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/HEAD/install.sh)"
  2. Update Homebrew by running the following command:

    brew update
  3. Retrieve the list of all the outdated packages on your system:

    brew outdated
  4. Upgrade these packages to the lastest version available in Homebrew’s repositories:

    brew upgrade

    If you want to upgrade selected packages only, run the following command: brew upgrade package-name
