I have a MacBook Pro from mid-2014 running on Yosemite. If I update the macOS, will the Apple apps (iTunes, Pages, Numbers, etc.) be automatically updated?

I have also been wondering whether it would be a good idea to upgrade to High Sierra. I am hesitant because the system is running smoothly, and I have seen that people report some problems after upgrading, so I would very much appreciate your thoughts on this matter.

    I would suggest waiting until Mojave is released. No point in taking time to backup & upgrade twice. – JBis Jul 6 '18 at 16:45

    I have seen that people report some problems after upgrading... There's no operating system in existence that updates/upgrades perfectly for 100% of the people. High Sierra is a stable OS now and is worth upgrading. Contrary to what @JBis advised, an old adage in IT is "never upgrade to a dot zero version." When Mojave is released it will be 10.14.0 – Allan Jul 6 '18 at 16:47

    I suggest making a backup (as an ongoing strategy), perform the upgrade and address issues as they arise. – Allan Jul 6 '18 at 16:52

    @Allan Although true, I didn't mean immediately. The OP has survived with outdated/old OS for a while now. I think that the OP can wait a bit more for 10.14.(!0). P.S. (At least with my experience), Mojave is very good even in beta. – JBis Jul 6 '18 at 16:53

    Flagged to close as opinion-based, but the amount of trouble I've had with Sierra & HS, I'd stay where you are for now. See if Mojave is any better :/ – Tetsujin Jul 6 '18 at 17:07

In answer to your question:

if I update the macOS, will the Apple apps (iTunes, Pages, Numbers, etc.) be automatically updated?

Update from @nohillside:

Updating macOS will not update applications downloaded from the Mac App Store, so you will need to manually update Pages, Numbers etc.
