Change RSS update frequency in Apple Safari

RSS is popular way to syndicate information and provide news feeds. When you bookmark an RSS feed in Apple Safari, Safari updates the feed articles every 30 minutes by default. But if you think this is too fast, then you can change the RSS update frequency. Here is how :

  1. Run Apple Safari. On the top-right side, you would see a settings gears like icon. Click on it and select Preferences as shown

  2. Alternatively, you can press the keyboard combination Ctrl + , to open the Preferences window.

  3. In the Preferences window, select the RSS tab.
  4. From the drop-down list labeled Check for updates, select the interval. You can select from 30 minutes, every hour, every day or never.

    If you have the RSS feeds bookmarked from one or more news web sites, then you can set it to update every hour. If you have bookmarked RSS feeds from sites that update daily, then you can choose a longer period.

  5. Close the Preferences window.
