Updates on already downloaded apps usually go unnoticed by the user unless there is a new feature being introduced on the app. Turns out, that update that says, “Bug fixes” is the solution to why the app may be crashing suddenly, or taking up too much battery life. A bug is an error or fault that will cause an unexpected result in the program. This means bug fixes are an essential component to developing and maintaining applications.
The majority of what app developers do is find bugs to fix and therefore make the application run as smoothly as possible for the end user. Next time your phone sends an update notification, you can thank mobile developers for maintaining a healthy and successful app!
