This may not be something new to most of the Gear VR users but it is always better to have your software updated to the newer version which is more likely to have fewer bugs. Doing the constant update would prevent lag that could happen because of using the older versions of the software.

Usually, the updated versions are more user-friendly than the older ones and if you want a lag free experience then you should take care of it and download all the recent updates to have a better VR experience.
There is lag even when you have too many apps open in the background since there is a lot of space that is occupied by the other apps and games that are not in use.
You might want to close all the other apps since that just consumes a lot of space on your RAM causing slower running speeds of the VR app. You should close all the other apps in the background which can interfere with your currently running apps in VR.
