What are updates?

An update is information that keeps your computer out of trouble and keeps you safer while surfing the web. Every computing gadget has  an Operating System (OS). This is the layer between the hardware (physical components) and the software (applications on the device). The OS manages tasks such as storing and retrieving data, connecting with other programs and more. As new technologies are released, the OS requires upgrades to improve functionality and resolve current security issues. You must be online to update. Both Windows and Mac are usually set to look for updates automatically, but it is important to regularly check for updates.
