Apple just released iOS 10 and Mac OS Sierra in September. A common question I get asked is should I upgrade the operating system for my computer or mobile phone?
The answer is always YES with some common sense exceptions:
No – when the OS has just been released. Try to wait at least two weeks or more to see if other users have problems.
No – when you don’t have a current backup.
No – when it’s your main “production” machine where you do your work.
No – when your most important applications have not yet OR will not support the upgrade.
No – when you have no technical support immediately available.
No – when you are about to travel with your device.
No – when your device is 3 -5 years of age. Some hardware won’t run on new operating systems and you might not get the promised new features. Older devices need a retirement plan which I will write about in the future.
