How to update your Android device
There is no singular answer to the question of how to update an Android device as the exact steps vary by manufacturer, Android version, and sometimes even from one device to another, even if both were made by the same company.
If you are wondering how to update Android on your device, this guide will show you the basic steps, but the exact method may vary slightly.
- Open Settings
- Most Android devices have a search option at the top. Search for Update. This will show you the System update or its equivalent setting.
- Tap System Update.
- Tap Check now or Check for updates.
- Now you will see an update, if there is any.
- Tap Download and Install.
This will update Android on your device, once the download is complete. Your device may restart multiple times during the update process, so don’t panic.
If nothing happens after step 4, it means that your device is most probably on the latest version of Android released by the manufacturer.
