Updating your phone's software

Your phone should alert you of an available software update automatically within a few days of it being released. You can also follow the below steps to manually check for the latest update and install it on your device.

Your device will check for updates and give you the option to download and install, if any are available. You can use your phone during the installation process, but must reboot the device for the update to take effect.
