They can then click on ‘About phone’ and then tap ‘System updates’ to check for the latest update.

This type of update is usually a large file and it is to be noted that users should have an ample amount of battery life in their smartphone at least 50 percent. It is advised to back up data before the installation and users should connect to a high-speed network of Wi-Fi to download the update as extra charges may be applied when using a carrier network.
