Is this necessary? You bet! Major updates to WordPress roll out once per year, and you need to take advantage of same. Why? Keeping your WordPress installation up to date is the most important part of managing any WordPress site. It will ensure that your site performs as efficiently as possible, and more importantly, it will keep on top of bug fixes and security patches. It’s one of the most effective methods for enhancing security against hackers.
IMPORTANT: Do not be tempted to click that “Update WordPress Now” button until you have backed up your site – your MySQL database and all site files including plugins! A full backup of your site is critical to protect your site’s integrity should something go wrong – and believe me, it happens!
