How To Update Your Devices To The Latest Software

Stuck on how to make sure your updates are up to date across your devices? We've got you! Check out our all in one guide for updating software across different operating systems...

Android Updates

In order to update your android to the latest software, open up the notification when a new update becomes available to your device and tap the update action to begin the update download. If you need to do this manually, open your phone's settings app, click on system and then system update and here you'll see your update status. Proceed to follow any steps on the screen to install the update. Security updates tend to happen automatically. However, to check if security updates are available to download manually, open your phone's settings app, click on security and then Google security check-up. Proceed to follow any steps on the screen to install the update.

Apple Updates

Apple updates should install automatically when a new one rolls out. If, however, you need to install it manually, take the following steps to do so wirelessly:

  • First, back up your device using iCloud or your computer.
  • Next, plug your device into a power source and connect to the internet with Wi-Fi to enable wireless downloading capabilities.
  • Then, go to settings, general and then tap software update. If you see two software update options available, choose the one you want to install.
  • Finally, tap install now. If you see download and install instead, tap it to download the update, enter your passcode, then tap install now.
Your new update will then begin to install and you'll have access to the latest software available to your device.
