How to Update Galaxy Note 5 via Over The Air (OTA Update)

The Over The Air (OTA) update requires you to connect your Galaxy Note 5 to a Wi-Fi network to avoid high data charges.
  • From the device Home screen, simply tap Apps.
  • Tap the Settings (gear icon).
  • Tap the System tab.
  • Tap About device.
  • Tap Software update.
  • Tap Check for updates.

Make sure your Galaxy Note5 hasn't been rooted nor modified so you can take the update without any hiccups. Again, updating via Over-The-Air for a rooted and a modified device will not tend to work. So you may unroot your device first before performing  the software updates.
