How to check Software updates on my Mobile Phone?
You will find the update settings in one of the below places (these differ by model and operating system):
- Settings > About device > Software update > Update now
- Settings > About device > Software update > Download and install
- Settings > Software update > Download updates manually
Operating system updates are released periodically for your device. If you are having difficulty with your device, you should always check for updates as a fix for the problem may have been released.
Software upgrades may be available for your device and will enhance functionality and security. However, updates are device dependant and not every Samsung device will run the latest Android version.
Software updates fall into two general types: operating system updates and security updates. Please note that the type and version of update available will depend on your model.
