Should you update bloatware?

I just wanted to know if you should update apps you dont use that are already installed in the phone?

Re: Should you update bloatware?

I update it just so that I don't see them needing updating. I get annoyed seeing them all the time at the top of the list showing that they need to be updated. It won't hurt anything to update them. Hope this helps.

 You likely should update them. Many times the updates can fix security issues that could affect you even if you are not using the bloatware. Notice how when you boot your phone, these bloatware apps are running sometimes?


It might be a slim chance, but not one I'd want to take on a "from factory" phone. Not only that but yes, you'll not be nagged to update them any longer.
