How to Update Android Phone to Latest Version

Software updates or upgrades fix bugs and sometimes introduce new features as well. So, we recommend you keep your Android phone updated. Almost all Android phones automatically update software to the latest version. But sometimes, you may need to manually update your Android phone.

So, if your Android phone is running slow (try factory reset as well) or you are facing bugs, it’s time for a Software Update or System Update. Remember, you can only update your Android phone’s software if your manufacturer has released an update.
