How to turn on automatic updates for your phone

Season of Thanks

2018 has been a year of big changes for Harbor Computer Services. We have some new team members on our staff, and several new clients. Welcome to you all!


The year ahead holds many new things in store, some of which we can anticipate, and some, we can’t. That’s the nature of the business! In fact, things change so quickly, that we can’t always anticipate when new things and old things might collide.


Operating System Updates

Your operating system of your device is like the structure of a house. While there are a lot of important pieces, it is the structure that holds everything together. If the structure isn’t maintained, it might come crashing down. The same goes for your phone or computer.

Updates come out periodically. They fix bugs, security issues, and other issues that may come up after the original operating system is released. If you put off an update, you put your device and your organizations data at risk! So, it is very important to keep those updates current. The best way to do that is to set your operating system updates to happen automatically. Set it and forget it!
