In the past when there is a new WordPress version release the site admin would have to log into the admin area and manually update their website. As of WordPress 3.7 the core development team have created a new feature called automatic updates. This is done by using the new WP_Automatic_Updater class located in /wp-admin/includes/class-wp-updater.php. This is not just for core updates it can also be used to automatically update themes and plugins. With this new class there are lots of information in the codex to use the auto updater class.
