major update i dont understand

,y ipad wanted to update an iOS 10.2. what exactly is that. first it said it would take 1 hour, then 4 hours, then 2 hours, then 4 hours then back to 1 hour. i dont think i had my ipad on over1 and 30 minutes before (roughly guessing) so. im not too saure. i would think the update might drain the battery a bit, but thats ok bevcause when it started it was about 88%.

Those estimates are based on the current download speed. If your network is busy, or Apple's servers are busy, then you'll get longer download times.

I would recommend plugging in for all updates.

The come when something important is fixed or a lot of little fixes are grouped, or there is a major update.

The current update is a set of security fixes for the browser trying to prevent exploits from doing thing that could harm your data or manipulate your phone/iPad.
