*** IMPORTANT NOTE FOR EVERYONE HERE : PICO GAPPS IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR EVERY ROM , DO NOT USE NANO, MICRO AND OTHER VARIANTS OF GAPPS TO AVOID ANY ISSUES LIKE CRASHES AND DPI INCOMPATIBILITY ***
Upgrades from previous versions of CM-13.0 are the same process as install, except you do not need to wipe anything. Contrary to popular belief, you do not need to even wipe cache and dalvik-cache when upgrading between CM-13.0 versions. You only need to wipe if you are doing a major upgrade, switching to a different ROM entirely, or attempting to fix bugs caused by bad backups or corrupt app data.
