Update App for Mac

I have been prompted to update my Mac app (Sept 2019) and have successfully activated the update and enter the password correctly. It looks like the app will update by when reopening the app after 5 mins it again prompts me to update. This action has been repeated. There is no other instruction to restart the Mac. Please can you provide some further advise to install the latest app update.

Hello FlyingFifteen,

 

Thank you for your post and welcome to the Bose Community.

 

I am sorry to hear that you are having some problems with your SoundTouch application for Mac. I would highly recommend that you visit this link >> SoundTouch® controller app << and install a fresh version of the application. This will overwrite the existing version and ensure that you have the most up to date release.

 

Let me know if you experience any problems with this.

 

Warm regards,

Re: Update App for Mac

Hello:  I too have been having problems with the Bose Soundtouch app on my Macbook.  No problems with iOS (phone, iPad).  I went to the site you suggested and this is what comes up

"SoundTouch-osx-installer” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software."  Then it goes on and says please tell the manufacturer to update their software.  Please advise.  PLC.

Re: Update App for Mac

So, I did something I never do and always tell my clients to investigate before posting to a message board... I didn't look around the site enough and in digging deeper lo-and-behold I found my answer.  Many thanks to Wayne_M for your advise.  It worked!

Re: Update App for Mac

I was having this same problem so I uninstalled the Soundtouch software and attempted to reinstall.  However, when I click on the Soundtouch installation icon, I get the following message:

“SoundTouch-osx-installer” can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software.

This software needs to be updated. Contact the developer for more information.

 

This item is on the disk image “SoundTouch-app-installer-23.0.0-2805-d6e7bf6.dmg”. Safari downloaded this disk image today at 3:03 PM from downloads.bose.com.

 

Does anyone have a solution for this?

Re: Update App for Mac

Hey @maikol33,

 

Are you saying the app will not install on your system or the app isn't operating once downloaded?

 

As noted by other users in this thread, visit HERE to read about the workaround to have your SoundTouch app working!
