Z7 & 50mm 2.8MC and 3.31 firmware

I got a Z7 with firmware 3.10. I bought the new 50mm 2.8 MC lens and noticed there is a firmware update (3.31) for the camera that mentions:

"Added support for NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lenses."

However, in the last couple of months, I somehow misplaced my XQD card reader. In fact, I ever never used it as I find USB-C cable more convenient.

Now my questions:

1. Do I miss anything by not upgrading? The lens seems to be working just fine. Perhaps better JPEG corrections?

2. Is there a way of upgrading the firmware without having the XQD reader? I know that newer cameras can do it through Snapbridge, but mine is the original Z7.

Or do I just need to buy a new reader?
