  • Tap Check for updates.
  • Tap the Install button, then OK.

If the update is available, it will just prompt you the update’s technical details including on how to download and install it. If somehow the update isn’t available yet, it will also tells you that that your device software is up to date. However, even if the update is already rolled out and you’ve already knew that it is officially released in your country and or network provider, you should always consider that the delivery of the update usually takes place into stages and may also take days before it arrives on some areas. So you may have to wait and keep on checking until you see the update.
