As with any major upgrade like before installing it, it always pay to check that all the Applications you use and external devices such as printers, scanners etc will all work with the new Operating System. And always do a backup before upgrading. If unsure, it always pays to hold off for a few “updates” and for it to be out a bit longer until more people have used it, just so you can be sure everything you use will work.
