Installing Python 3 on a Mac

<< Previous Note Next Note >>


  • Head to Click 'Downloads', then download the latest version from there:

    This downloads the appropriate 64-bit version of the latest Python release (3.9.6 as of August 2021).
    • NOTE: If your Mac's OS version is older than 10.9 (year 2013), I recommend upgrading your OS first. If you are unable to, see this FAQ for how to install Python on an older version of Mac OS.
  • Proceed with installation. If everything goes fine, you should see an IDLE shortcut in your Launchpad.
  • Go ahead and try it out! Video tutorial here.

Should I Re-install?

If you already have a working version of Python on your laptop, you might be wondering if it is OK to keep it or you should re-install. The run-down:
  • Already have Python 3 but older version
    If you previously installed an earlier version of Python 3 (say, 3.5.1 or something), then you should either update it or simply un-install it and then install the newest version of Python 3. That way, you can make sure you are working in the exactly same setup with the rest of the class, which just might save you some headache stemming from a configuration unique to your machine.
  • I have Anaconda Python
    That works too! Make sure to update it to the latest 3.X version. There is one caveat: in LING 1330/2330, we will be using the interpretive shell interface via IDLE rather than Jupyter Notebook you probably have been using. This is how you launch IDLE for Anaconda Python:
    1. Open up a Terminal.
    2. Type in idle3 &, followed by ENTER. ('&' keeps Terminal usable while IDLE window is open.)

  • PEP 578, Runtime audit hooks
  • PEP 574, Pickle protocol 5 with out-of-band data
  • Typing-related: PEP 591 (Final qualifier), PEP 586 (Literal types), and PEP 589 (TypedDict)
  • Parallel filesystem cache for compiled bytecode
  • Debug builds share ABI as release builds
  • f-strings support a handy = specifier for debugging
  • continue is now legal in finally: blocks
  • on Windows, the default asyncio event loop is now ProactorEventLoop
  • on macOS, the spawn start method is now used by default in multiprocessing
  • multiprocessing can now use shared memory segments to avoid pickling costs between processes
  • typed_ast is merged back to CPython
  • LOAD_GLOBAL is now 40% faster
  • pickle now uses Protocol 4 by default, improving performance

There are many other interesting changes, please consult the 'What's New' page in the documentation for a full list.

  • The binaries for AMD64 will also work on processors that implement the Intel 64 architecture. (Also known as the 'x64' architecture, and formerly known as both 'EM64T' and 'x86-64'.)
  • There are now 'web-based' installers for Windows platforms; the installer will download the needed software components at installation time.
  • There are redistributable zip files containing the Windows builds, making it easy to redistribute Python as part of another software package. Please see the documentation regarding Embedded Distribution for more information.

And now for something completely different

Mr Anemone (Graham Chapman): Mr Chigger. So, you want to learn to fly?
Mr Chigger (Terry Jones): Yes.
Mr Anemone: Right, well, up on the table, arms out, fingers together, knees bent...
Mr Chigger: No, no, no.
Mr Anemone:(very loudly) UP ON THE TABLE! (Mr Chigger gets on the table) Arms out, fingers together, knees bent, now, head well forward. Now, flap your arms. Go on, flap, faster... faster... faster... faster, faster, faster, faster - now JUMP! (Mr Chigger jumps and lands on the floor) Rotten. You're no bloody use at all. You're an utter bloody wash-out. You make me sick, you weed!
Mr Chigger: Now look here...
Mr Anemone: All right, all right. I'll give you one more chance, get on the table...
Mr Chigger: Look, I came here to learn how to fly an aeroplane.
Mr Anemone: A what?
Mr Chigger: I came here to learn how to fly an aeroplane.
Mr Anemone:(sarcastically) Oh, 'an aeroplane'. Oh, I say, we are grand, aren't we? (imitation posh accent) 'Oh, oh, no more buttered scones for me, mater. I'm off to play the grand piano'. 'Pardon me while I fly my aeroplane.' NOW GET ON THE TABLE!
