When to Update the Lightroom Desktop App (if Lightroom didn’t auto-update):
I don’t expect any issues with Lightroom 4.3 and updates of this app usually go smoothly, but as usual, if you’re not in a hurry to get the new features, it can’t hurt to wait a week or so to make sure that others aren’t experiencing serious bugs with it.
If I hear of serious issues with this release I will post them here in this section – please check here rather than emailing me.

How to Update the Lightroom Desktop App
If you previously were prompted to agree to auto-update Lightroom and if you agreed, then when you open Lightroom for the first time after the update is available, go to Help>System Info to verify that you are now using version 4.3. Otherwise to update to 4.3, go to Help>Updates, and in the Creative Cloud app, on the Updates tab click on Update next to Lightroom (cloud-based photo service; not Lightroom Classic or Lightroom CC 2015.)
Operating System Requirements for 4.x
- Windows 10 versions 1903 and later
- MacOS Mojave, Catalina (and Big Sur when it comes out later this year).
If your operating system is not up-to-date enough, you will not see the option to update Lightroom in your Creative Cloud app.
