Reply To: App Updates – are they really necessary?

I have just run for ten weeks without updating my phone. (Not strictly true as Google did its own sneaky updates and ignored my setting). As I have an old phone, there were no Android updates, so no new features. Existing apps continued to perform with zero issues. As I have nothing better to do I have put the phone on charge and I’m letting it do 66 updates. If there are any issues I’ll post again, but to me it appears app updating is a waste of time and effort!
