How to update an Android OS

Posted In HOW TO DO! - By DailyAndroidNews on Sunday, October 13th, 2013 With No Comments »

Android is the fastest growing platform for smartphones in the United States. There are many manufacturers of Android devices, and the downside is that many of them kept up to date. Google has updated its Android operating system several times in the past year, but not all devices receive the update at the same time. Depending on the line and manufacturer, some phones receive this update as soon as it is released and others take months. These for the Android operating system are discharged into the air and are checked in the phone options menu.

  1.  Turn your Android device.
  2. Press the “Menu”, represented by four horizontal lines, the word “menu” or four small squares, and select “Settings” (Settings).
  3. Scroll and select “About Phone” (About phone).
  4. Touch “System Updates” (system updates) and the phone will automatically check the new software. If there is a new one to be downloaded, you will see a message stating is fully updated.
  5. Click “Install Now” (Install Now) if there is new software available. The update will be downloaded and the phone restarts.

Tips and Warnings

  • When you install an update over the air, connect to a Wi-Fi when possible. Updates to the operating system are data intensive and installed faster over Wi-Fi. Connect your phone to a wall charger during the update .
  • Some Android updates can erase data from your device. Before installing an update , be sure to synchronize your phone with your Gmail account associated. Applications that have been purchased through the Android Market will be available for download, even after a data wipe. You have to buy it again.
