What Is Jio Driver?
Well, it doesn’t need much explanation but for few who might think what is a Jio driver is for them let me give a quick explanation. A computer has peripherals to enhance its capabilities and resources. Printers, webcam, modem, or even the Jio Link, etc are among them. It has a Hardware part and software part. Though any hardware is connected to the computer there is a need for software to control the hardware/device. We call this software or set of instructions as a Driver. This acts as the mediator or interface between the device and the computer.
New versions of the OS (Operating system) comes with built-in drivers. means it already has drivers to run common devices like a newsletter or a JioFi.
