After the initial lot of users has installed the update, the company usually monitors its feedback channels to look out for any hidden bug that may have slipped out in the update. In case of any major system-breaking bugs, the company usually called back the update, patches it and then rolls out a new update. In case everything is good to go, then the company rolls out the update to all the users in the market.
