As soon as I hear that Apple has released an update, I check my devices to see if it is available, and if it is, I download it. Otherwise as soon as my device tells me it has an update, I update.
Director in Manufacturing, 1,001 - 5,000 employees
Phone and PC are both set for auto updates. However on PC I check once a month or more for any other updates. I occasionally find Apps, and browsers on both that need some manual intervention

Within the last month when the notification of update availability was received.

I install security-focused updates ASAP.  I usually wait 1-2 weeks to install feature updates just in case a brand new feature comes bundled with new problems.
