Something weird happened today when I was installing Windows updates on my Acer ES1-572. I received an update "Insyde Software - Firmware". When I restarted my device, it appeared to be a BIOS update. My BIOS version is now 1.18 while the latest one released on Acer's website is 1.17. Downloaded the one on the Acer's website and could not install it as I received an error message indicating that I have a newer version. Is this sth to worry about? How is it even possible? I guess that for the BIOS update was installed successfully then it must have been compatible right?
