No computer needed – update your tablet software and apps wirelessly for new features and improved performance. By default, your tablet automatically checks for updates daily, and downloads and installs the updates found.

Before starting the update, connect a charger or make sure your tablet has enough battery power.

Your tablet needs to connect to the internet. The size of the update may be big, and if you don't have a data plan, the data transmission costs may pile up quickly. For info about possible data costs, contact your network service provider.

If you install a software update, you cannot use the device until the installation is completed and the device is restarted.
