Stay in step with the beat – update your phone software and apps wirelessly to get new and enhanced features for your phone. Updating the software may also improve your phone performance.
Before starting the update, connect a charger or make sure the device battery has enough power.
Warning: If you install a software update, you cannot use the device, even to make emergency calls, until the installation is completed and the device is restarted.
Using services or downloading content, including free items, may cause the transfer of large amounts of data, which may result in data costs.
- By default, your phone automatically downloads available
updates whenever the data connection settings allow it. When your
phone notifies you that an update is available, just follow the instructions
shown on your phone.
Tip: By default, your phone updates your apps and other components (such as device hub) automatically when you’re connected to a WiFi network. To check your update history, tap Store > > downloads, and swipe to history.
The instructions in this user guide are based on the latest available software version. If your device has not been updated to the latest available software, there may be differences in the availability and functionality of some features.
After the update, check the Lumia Help + Tips app or support pages for your new user guide.
Switch off automatic update downloading
- If you want to keep tight control of your data costs, you can switch off automatic update downloading. On the start screen, swipe down from the top of the screen, tap ALL SETTINGS > phone update, and clear the Automatically download updates if my data settings allow it check box.
