Every now and then, a new version of Android is available for your smartphone or tablet. Normally, your Android tablets or phone would automatically notify you about this updated and you’ll be able to simply install it by restarting your device. In some cases, however, it might be possible that you have missed out on the latest Android updates. This could happen because you simply canceled your previous update, or because you have disabled the automatic update feature.

How To Update Your Android Tablet Operating System

Updating your Android tablet is a simple and quick process. Before doing so, however, we recommend you to backup all your files. Although normally a system update should not remove any data, it’s always good to be on the safe side.

After you have made a backup of your files and data, you can follow the simple steps below to update your Android tablet PC.

1) Make Sure That You’re Connected To The Internet

In order to upgrade your tablet, you’ll naturally need to be connected to the internet. Therefore, we’d always advise you to update the OS of your Android tablet at home or in the office where you have a stable internet connection. You could, of course, also make use of your mobile 3G or 4G data.

 

2) Go To Settings

Once you are connected to the internet, you’ll have to navigate yourself to the Settings menu of your tablet PC. On most Android tablets, you’ll be able to access the Settings menu via your notification bar or via the App on your home screen. Normally, the Settings app on your tablet computer will feature a logo that looks like a cog.

 

3) About Tablet

After you’ve opened up your Settings menu, you’ll have to scroll down until you see ‘’About Tablet’’ or, in some cases, ‘’About Device’’. Once you have found this option, tap on it to continue your Android system update.

 

4) System Update

While you’re in the ‘’About Tablet’’ app, scroll down until you see the tab named as ‘’System Update’’. Note that, on some devices, this tab may be called ‘’Software Update’’ or something similar instead.

 

5) Check For Updates

The next thing you’ll have to do is press the button at the bottom named ‘’Check for Updates’’. When you’ve done so, your Android device will check your current operating system to see whether there are any updates available. If your system is up to date, your Tablet will tell you so. If, however, it has found an available upgrade, you’ll have to continue by following the final step below.

 

6) Update

If your Android version is not up to date, your tablet will advise you to install the latest Android OS. This can be done by simply clicking ‘’Install’’ or ‘’Update’’. By doing so, you will start the update process of your Android tablet computer. This process may take anywhere from a couple of minutes to an hour.

 

And there you go! You have now successfully updated your Android tablet and can enjoy the latest software features available. Using the latest Android (Android Nougat in 2017) operating system will enhance your user experience by delivering a better performance and increased functionality.
