I sold my iPad and my laptop, using the proceeds to help me get a Surface Pro 3. I bought a subscription for our household to Office 365, because of my familiarity with the Microsoft Office suite of products.
After the most recent suite of updates, I noticed that I have never gotten updates for anything other than the OS. What I discovered (remembered) is this: If you don’t explicitly turn on the updates for “other” Microsoft products, you won’t get them. The setting to change this is at Control Panel / System and Security / Windows Update /Change Settings. (Click on image to view)
