Software updates are like oil changes and tune-ups for your phone. They keep things running smoothly. Software updates are released to update the user interface, enhance security, and remove bugs from your phone. We recommend updating your phone's software whenever it is available to make sure your phone stays in tip-top shape.

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.

Note: Touch Back if there is no update available, or if you do not want to download the update. Depending on your software version, it may be necessary to repeat this process multiple times.

Important: An Android update is approved by the manufacturer first. Once Samsung approves it, it is sent to the carriers. Each carrier customizes, modifies and releases their own version of Android. In some instances, they may never release an update. This results in customers with the same manufactured devices having different versions of Android. Please contact your carrier for Android update questions.
