updating he OS does not lose the apps, but things do happen and that why you should backup your devices prior to an OS update.

 

 

do a Back Up of your PlayBook using your computer and BlackBerry Desktop Software.

This can be downloaded for free from http://us.blackberry.com/apps-software/desktop/

Dont update OS until after the Back Up is complete, disconnect Playbook from PC, reboot Playbook and do the OS update via wifi and not with your PC
