Dear, All ColorOS SuperFans,

Android Update

Android OS is the one that ruling the mobile industry today and even will for further more years unless someone pop up with the new system for smartphones. Android is everywhere now, from Smartphones to tv and has created its own eco-system that will not make someone go away from it. Though Android has grown so big, many people still worry about one thing always, that is Updates. Android updates is most asked questions around the world that when it would be rolling out to their devices.

Most of the Android distribution stay at 15 - 25% on latest upgrade and filled to 80% in upcoming years and people wait very eager to taste the new flavour and they finally do if they fall in right hands of manufacturers.


Why Does it Delay
Platform:

Android is an Open Source Project (AOSP as we call it) and what I mean by that is that anybody can get the permission to use Android's source code to build their own version or better known as the Android skin for a particular device. However, there are various factors which come into the picture.

Processors:

As Android is an open-source, Its runs on multiple platforms and it differs from brand to brand and manufacturers. So in order to make the new update compatible with each of the chipset, the respective chipset makers share their codes with the different OEMs. As a result, this step easily takes up a month for the chipset makers to blend the new update to their different processor variants. On the other hand, Apple doesn’t really have to go all this as the devices who will get a new software update are all Apple devices, hence, they all use Apple’s own chip inside. This is primarily the reason why Apple takes a lot less time testing an update on a particular device than any of the Android chipset makers out there.

Customized Skins:

Here's another factor that affects and delay further to reach the end-users. Manufacturers have different customized skins running over the Android offering plenty of features which does not include in Android original version and thus trying to get more attention to their version of Android. As manufacturers releasing a device every now and then, it has become impossible of them to work and release version upgrade for all their device. But some really does like ColorOS which has recently announced that upgrade will be rolled out most of its devices where some even 2 + years old devices also included.

The last step involves testing. Yes! Before companies like Oppo roll out an update to their users, the first release it for a bunch of people who then test everything which can possibly be tested on Operating System update. ColorOS Beta update programme is pretty close to what I am talking about here. Further, this is where Carriers also perform their own testing in order to make sure that the update is stable.

Updates do a lot good to one's device. But, if you are a normal user, should you update your device's software too?

Performance

Software upgrades, which have now become synonymous with smartphones, are essentially little updates for the smartphone's operating system that allows the device to perform at its optimal level.


So why should you upgrade your device's software?


Stability
Smartphones are just a device with various hardware engaged to make it operational through an operating system, and Software which makes that hardware run has to go through regular updates and upgrade to make the device not to convince on performance

So in order to counter any ill effect, the developers and manufacturers of the devices work in tandem testing out applications and software which might cause instability to the device and release software patches in the form of software upgrades, helping the operating system stay in the best possible shape and enhancing device's stability as well.

Bug fixes

A rare condition, certain operating systems faced causing problems for smartphones, leading to bad user experience. Such problems are even found in newly launched handsets. Apart from the battery, there are hundreds of components inside a smartphone that needs to operate optimally to perform well but it anything malfunctions, it can be corrected through software upgrades or at least some basic repair work can be attempted by the company.

Security

Major issues in the modern age is the data theft which is stored in these devices automatically and also by the users while doing multiple things like financial transactions and online purchases. Today cybercriminals are exploiting smartphones in every way in order to find out a loophole in the security so that they can steal the confidential data for their gain. This is precisely why handset manufacturers also invest in legitimate hacking of the devices in order to find loopholes that need fixing.

In order to safeguard users from these criminals and vulnerability, a security patch is released by the company as an individual upgrade or as a part for a bigger update file in order to safeguard users from such attacks. For example, Android has been in the news for such security issues, but security upgrades for the Android devices have also been released from time to time to protect the users.


Additional features

This is where every user gets excited to receive and use the latest available,
