Hardware (firmware) updates are designed to be infrequent; likely less than monthly and potentially 3-4 times per year. Although the exact frequency may vary, we aim to provide timely updates without overwhelming you. Our goal is to strike a balance between delivering important updates and respecting your user experience. Firmware updates are often used to improve the security of the device. We will never force you to update your firmware, but we do strongly recommend that you perform firmware updates as they become available.
