runtime-updates

Windows 10 is expected to improve updates for both the Mobile and PC. Back in May, we reported that Microsoft is delivering runtime updates for Windows 10 for PCs as app updates via the Store. Now, as it seems like, Microsoft has started delivering runtime updates for Windows 10 Mobile via the Store as well. For those who are unfamiliar, the runtimes are basically frameworks and libraries that an OS needs to run on.

So what’s the benefit of updating runtime updates via the Store? Previously, Microsoft used to deliver runtime updates via Phone Update which would usually take a while – however, delivering runtime updates as app updates would mean that users will be able to get the latest version pretty quickly which could include some major bug fixes.

Are you glad that Microsoft is delivering runtime updates via the Store? Or do you still prefer getting them via Phone Update? Discuss in the comment section below.
