TMS 33: The Ins and Outs of Major and Minor Portable Technology Updates


Working for many software companies over the past 20+ years has given me a wealth of insight when it comes to how software is created.

There is a lot of process and structure that goes into software version releases but often we are not aware of the why behind all these updates we get on our smartphones or computers.

Security is a HUGE reason we should update our apps on our phones or on our computers, but I have found that not everyone is updating.  Mainly because they have either had a bad experience when updating or just didn’t make it a priority.

In this episode, I share the difference between a Point and the Major release of software and why it’s important you know the difference.

Now, I want to hear from you.  What is your biggest fear when it comes to potentially updating apps on your smartphone?  Have you had a bad experience?  Leave your comments in the show notes.

    Thanks for sharing about the need to update apps right away. I’m usually reluctant to do that and wait a while because of all the horror stories I’ve heard about installing updates.
