Downloading new apps from the Mac App Store is incredibly easy, but it’s not always convenient. Such as installing large applications xcode It is constantly updated, frustrated.
If you have fiber optics, it will take no more than a few minutes to download 12.6 GB of Xcode. But you still have to wait for its installation, a long step, even on powerful Macs. When installing Xcode, another application could not be installed in parallel. It’s very embarrassing not to be informed about the progress of the Mac App Store installation, unless we know a trick, there is only a circle of rotation and rotation!
Move your cursor over the animation circle in the Updates section to see the installation status of Xcode or larger apps. After a while, the installation percentage will be displayed. It does not speed up the process, but at least the installation is not blocked and it allows you to check where it is.
This trick also works for download progress, although it is less effective because the download level appears under the download processor icon in the launchpad.
