    Safari 6.0.2 is current for OS X, and is available via Software Update for recent versions of OS X.


    If that doesn't answer your question and if you need Safari 6.0.1 or have an older version of OS X and are looking for a newer version of Safari, then some added details could be useful; if you're hitting errors, what you've tried, what Safari and OS X versions you're running, etc.

    There is no separate Safari download for either iOS or for OS X.


    Some terms I'm using here, as I'm a little confused about your current environment:

    • iOS is used on an iPhone or iPad device, and not on a Mac.
    • OS X 10.8 is known as Mountain Lion, and 10.8.2 is the current OS X release.


    On OS X, the Software Update tool ( > Software Update) will load the most current version of Safari automatically.  No other steps are required.  If you're running OS X 10.8.2 and somehow don't have the current version of Safari loaded, then download the OS X 10.8.2 combo update and install that.


    On iOS, the iOS software update can be performed from the Preferences application, or by connecting your iOS device to your OS X system using iTunes on your OS X system, or connecting your iOS device to iTunes on Microsoft Windows and using that.  Check for updates in iTunes, and update your iOS device, and you'll get the current Safari.


    Mentioned because this sometimes happens with OS X, if you've deleted the Safari application or have otherwise forced some other version of Safari to load, then try loading the combo update first, then reinstall OS X onto the system.  Make a full-disk external backup using Disk Utility booted from the recovery partition.

    It might be faster to contact the Apple store or reseller or Apple support in your particular region, and request assistance more directly.


    To continue here, please tell us what OS X version you have now, what version of Safari you have installed, and what's happening with Safari when it's not working.


    Some general details follow — I'm not clear on what's happening here — and I do not know what if any of the following will apply to your case.


    There is no Apple-provided separate Safari upgrade — nor any Safari downgrade — for OS X.  It's part of the OS X installation and upgrade kits.


    If some version of Safari was directly onto your OS X system through some means other than with an OS X update and if something has gone wrong with the results of that, then reinstalling the most recent combo update or reinstalling the whole operating system are the usual paths to resolution.


    If some version of Safari was not installed here and there are problems with a standard Mountain Lion installation, then try the following.  If you have any Safari extensions or plug-ins or any "haxies" (input managers) around, try disabling or removing them, and test Safari again.  Alternatively, try a completely different login, and see if Safari works in that other user login.


    If you have an older OS X release and need to do Mountain Lion development, then you will need to purchase and upgrade to a newer version of OS X.  The OS X version upgrade — and subsequent OS X updates — will upgrade Safari.


    Here is a previous (and details) discussion of the available OS X upgrade path; of acquiring 10.6 Snow Leopard if you need that, then of acquiring either 10.7 Lion or Mountain Lion 10.8 — depending on whether your Mac is supported by Mountain Lion.  If your Mac is not supported by Mountain Lion, then there is no supported way to use it to develop for Mountain Lion.
