Dell Update vs Dell website (Dell Smart Assist)?

Hello,

Should I be using Dell Update to keep my XPS 13 9360 up-to-date, or the Dell website?

The Dell website seems to have more up-to-date software and drivers, whereas Dell Update says that I'm up-to-date.

Thanks..

Hi dietchinator,

Thanks for posting.

The  Dell Update Application is supported on Inspiron, Vostro, XPS, and Dell Venue systems running Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1.  If you have a different OS, you may wish to use the website instead.

Hi. My XPS 13 is running Windows 10 from factory and comes with Dell Update (a version older than currently on the Dell website). The question was, should I be updating using the Dell website since the updates are newer than those detected by Dell Update? Or should I be sticking with Dell Update?
