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. 


Android code names are named after sweets and treats, with major new versions released annually. You'll often see operating system updates referred to by their name rather than the version number, however on your device the Android version you are using will be displayed as a number rather than a name.
