How WordPress Background Update Works?

The WordPress version 3.7 includes background updates feature. So, when a security or maintenance update’s released, the WordPress Background Update feature silently installs the new update available. This feature only functions for the minor updates, like Version 3.7.1 and doesn’t for the major updates, like Version 3.8. The reason is, a lot of Theme and Plugin dependencies may or may not fully support the major release and break your WordPress site layout.
