    Cpet I always recommend upgrading to the latest recommended by the vendor as long as it doesn't have bugs for something that you currently use in production. In conjunction with what CA_Valli and Mohamed_Ahmed_Kansoh have mentioned you can also upload a QKVIEW of your device to iHealth and it should provide you notable security concerns in informational, low, medium, and high risk and then what the resolution for each is. You can get to iHealth by going to the following link.

The following should be helpful with that upgrade path and the second link for service check date requirements.
