How To Check For Updates On Android


In this video I show you how to make your Android phone check for a software update. I go over how to do it on two different phones (one running Android 4.0 and the other 2.3) to cover a wider range of devices. I also show you how to force an update if you don’t have the option to check for updates available (or if you are just desperate to get that update on your phone).

To check for an update the normal way, go to settings, then about phone, then system updates and then tap check now.

To force an update check, go to the dialer and type in *#*#2432546#*#*
