When your device tells you that its operating system (OS) needs an update - usually with a persistent notification or prompt - it’s best to follow this advice.
Ideally, before installing any major OS update, your device data should be completely backed up either via cloud or on another device. Once your back-up has been secured, update your device as soon as possible.
The continued use of old or obsolete versions of operating systems exposes your computers and mobile gadgets to various security threats, most of which could also compromise your personal and private data stored in these devices.
Operating system updates provide fixes to possible bugs and security holes, along with cleaning up outdated software that may slow down your device. Ensure that your computer, mobile phone, or tablet is using the latest version of its OS to protect your devices and data from cybersecurity issues.
