Do I Need To Update My Devices Every Time?

Nothing more frustrating than being in the middle of an important text or email on your phone, when you get a notification that it's time to update your device! Do I Need To Update My Devices Every Time? Most of us just go ahead and update and get it over with, sometimes with frustrating and regretful results. The rest of us simply swipe away the notification and get back to texting. All this raises an important question, is it essential to update my devices every time?

It is typically not a requirement to update certain operating systems unless a specific type of software calls for it. This would be the case in a Windows OS, an example being that some people still use Windows XP, but there have been many updates since that type of software was introduced. Their computers still run fine and cause no issue when it comes to accessing the internet and doing basic tasks and then some.

This is the same for phones. We sometimes forget that phones are meant to communicate with people distantly, via actually making phone calls. There are so many other options to talk to people nowadays, but if someone were to use an old Nokia phone today, it would still hold its purpose and has no need for a specific OS. That being said, with newer phones that have apps installed have settings that will automatically update certain apps. This is an instance where an update may be essential to that app running properly, or even at all. This applies to tablets as well.

Ultimately it's not totally necessary to update your devices every time, as long as the basics of it work for you. But if you're not into just getting by, it may be time to update your devices on occasion. At least to get rid of that pesky notification!

Michael came to our office and fixed our iMac. He was very thorough and had it up and running in no time. Our office never missed a beat!

They did a great job in setting up my new laptop. They loaded new software and they moved over all my data and programs from a 12-year-old desktop. I'm thrilled with the new, faster computer and having all my old systems still working!!

I had a hard drive go down on a piece of video equipment. Michael and Computer Corner had me up and running in just a few days (parts had to be ordered). Thank you Computer Corner!

My son owns a computer businness in NC so when we needed someone local, we got a recommendation for Computer Corner from a friend. I am more than pleased. I will recommend them in a heartbeat. They communicated the status of my computer to me by text and the work was done very fast and the turnaround would probably have been faster if it hadn't been Thanksgiving week.

Best experience I've had with laptop repairs in Florida. Answered my many questions quickly, informed me of all of my options, and made sure I took home a well tuned machine. All repairs are costly no matter where you go, but at least you get what you pay for with the helpful staff here. As I type this, I'm planning another trip to see them.
