Do You Keep Your Software Updated?

One of the hassles of having lots of apps available for your computers, tablets and phones is keeping all that software up to date. While some apps can keep themselves updated, many of them require your manual input. Do you keep up with the latest updates?

Some devices are easier to keep updated than others. On the computer side of things, operating systems can update themselves automatically, as can some programs. But some programs don’t, leaving you with the job of checking for updates yourself or installing third-party tools to help you out.

Phones and tablets typically give you the option to update all your apps and your system software at once. But even then there are times when an update might break functionality. Obviously, it depends somewhat on the device you’re updating, but do you keep up with updates? Share your thoughts in the comments below.
