  • A pop up window appears to give you some information about the software update. Tap OK button to continue.
  • Your phone will check for the latest update. If it is available, your phone will download the software. It may take several minutes to download the software, depending on how fast your Wi-Fi connection is.

Note: You still can use your phone while downloading.

  • Once the download process is completed, a pop up window appears to ask you to install the software. Tap Install button to install the software right now.
  • Tap OK button to reboot the phone.
  • Your phone will begin to install the software. Wait until it is completed.
  • When the installation process is completed, your device will reboot again and then continue to optimizing apps in your phone. Wait until it is completed.

Once it is done, you will be presented at the lock screen from there you can unlock your device and use it.
