What Are Computer Updates and How Do They Affect Your Device?

Let’s face it, we all (well, most of us) like to stay up to date. We like to wear the latest fashions, we like our hair in the most up to date styles and colors, we like our homes reflective of the times (maybe a minimalist theme as opposed to appliances in that terrible olive or gold from the 70s) and we like to keep up with the latest trends so we don’t get left behind with the rapid pace of this crazy world.

Aside from all that though, one of the most important ways we need to keep up to date is with our computers. Computer updates keep our devices running smoothly and securely. They are basically new or improved software that replace older versions of the same software. Computer updates can help keep devices compatible with other programs, as well as resolve issues or eliminate vulnerabilities to attack that were not detected before the product was released to the public. 

It is recommended that you set your devices for automatic updates. That way, you won’t miss anything important. Download speed can vary depending on the particular update. It’s all good though because, with Internet Explorer on Windows, for example, if you are set up for automatic updates, you will be prompted to update. Then you can choose your update timing by delaying updates until they are convenient for you.
