If you’re like me, you probably wonder why iOS updates are so frequent. After all, when you update Slackchat, you don’t have to restart your iPhone every time it updates. In 2021, this method makes no sense. Even Apple’s own app, the App Store, doesn’t require you to reboot your device every time an update is available. And, you may be worried about hitting your data cap if you have 40 or more app updates to install.
As a result, iOS users are divided into two camps. One camp seeks out iOS software updates as soon as they are released, while the other prefers to let the Automatic Updates feature do the work. Obviously, the manual way is faster, but Apple has never explained why this strategy works. It also protects their servers from overloading. So, while you’d be better off manually checking for updates, you might have to wait for a few days.
As with any update, there are risks associated with downloading it. Apple teams are always on the lookout for potential security problems and ensuring that users get the latest version of their software as quickly as possible. In addition to security issues, updating iTunes takes a long time, so users should plan accordingly. Keep in mind that the update process can take a few minutes or hours, depending on the content of the update. Therefore, it’s recommended to save any files you might want to update before the update starts downloading.
