You may also see an improved performance of your web programs as updates might also be released for better compatibility between the Os and the configuration it operates on so as to get the most out of the hardware. Moreover, if you keep your applications up-to-date, they could need a later OS version which will have the necessary software dependencies and will permit them to operate effectively.
