I generally avoid updating BIOS unless I am having some problem with the motherboard or the motherboard supporting some hardware that I am adding. I have read that some have bricked their motherboard trying to update the BIOS but the few times I have, I never had that problem. I use Gigabyte motherboards in my 2 desktops & Gigabyte has software for updating which worked well. For my Mini 9, I see no reason to update as it is working well. For the Mini 10v I have some reservations about it. Generally, there are fixes that were not made due to the rush to get it to the market & the very 1st BIOS should be upgraded. Since it isn't my Mini 10v & it is working, I am not going to upgrade it to a later BIOS.

Yes, the BIOS can be upgraded. Usually it fixes bugs, sometimes adds features. You can get the info from Dell's web site.
