Like a Version!

So who else has an iPad 2 still? (Puts hand up). This is probably the best example of a device that is constantly trying to update applications with the latest versions. Many of our devices today have software updates available and I would not hesitate to say the average person has no idea how many they own that have updates available.

But who really makes sure their devices or software is using the latest version?! With each release there is a suite of fixes or additions that we rarely can inform ourselves with. What I would like to know is when should you update? and to be honest I don’t think it is every time. Some devices can be completely stuffed if the update doesn’t apply properly. So I think one of my questions to the Technorama team this year is what should you regularly update, how do you manage versioning and avoid risky business practice?
