The latest Windows updates are out now with new features and fixes – Komando

Patch Tuesday is a common practice among tech companies, accumulating updates and releasing them on the second Tuesday of every month. This doesn’t mean we won’t see updates at other times.
Apple released iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Apple TV updates this past Tuesday. If you have an Apple device, you have an update waiting for you. Tap or click here for a breakdown of the updates and how to get them.
