Preparing for a software update

Preparing for a software update

To make sure a software update can be carried out smoothly and without interruptions, prepare your phone for the update. Here's what you need to check.
  • If your battery level is low, give your phone a quick charge before starting the update.
  • Check how much free space you have on your phone and make some room for the update. To find out how to check the available storage, see Checking phone storage.

    If necessary, remove a few unwanted apps. Refer to Uninstalling an app to see how it's done.

    You can transfer files, photos, and videos to your computer or upload them to SkyDrive. To learn more, see Keeping things in sync and Backing up your files.

    Or delete large files (such as photos, videos, or music) from your phone.

  • Make sure your phone is set with the correct date and time. This determines which new updates you'll need. For details, see Correcting the date and time.
