How To Do Software Updates For Smartphones
Software updates for smartphones are very handy as they are easily done mostly in few clicks. If you have heard of OTA before, I will like to shed more light on that. The acronym simply stands for “over the air updates”. In this case, what the manufacturer of your phone brand does is to create a program instruction meant to update or upgrade your phone for optimized performance and send it over the air. To implement this sent update, you will have to go to your phone’s setting and click through to the about section and look for the update option. Once the update option for notification is clicked on, your phone will automatically go online to search for update and implement it.
Another way to do that, though for some phones, is to locate the update icon on the phone’s home screen and click on update from there which is kind of easier to do. However, in some cases you would see a notification for an update for your phone, in this case just click on the update option and allow the process to be completed. Note also that your phones’ battery must be at least 40-50% charged as an interrupted update process could result in further complication that might necessitate flashing your phone. Remember to also make sure that you have enough data for that update so you won’t be cut off half way!
