Mobile Devices: How Do I - Update OS on my Android

Your device downloads updates over your Wi-Fi connection (if available) or mobile network.

If your device notifies you about an update, follow the instructions to download and install it.

To manually check for updates:

Step 1

Open the Settings app. The settings app is usually located in your app drawer.

Step 2

Scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen and tap on About Phone or About Tablet (depending on your device)

Step 3

Tap System updates

It is recommended that you download updates when you have a Wi-Fi connection. Remember, these updates can be quite large (25MB or more) and may not be available in all countries. If the mobile network updates are not available in your country, update using a computer.
