How To Update Software - Sony Xperia Z1

Learn how to update software on your Sony Xperia Z1. Update your device to the most recent software version to get optimal performance and the latest enhancements. You can use the Update center application on your device to run a wireless update or you can use the PC Companion application on a computer to run an update using a USB cable connection.

If you update wirelessly, you can use either a mobile network or a Wi-Fi network connection. Make sure you back up and save all data stored on your device before you run an update.

Note: New software releases may not be compatible with all devices. When you run an update using the Update center application, a data connection is established and related charges may be incurred. Also, the availability of updates over a mobile network depends on your operator. Contact your network operator for more information.

Updating your device wirelessly

  • Use the Update center application to update your device wirelessly. You can download software updates manually, or you can allow Update service to update your device automatically whenever downloads become available.
