Updates for Android:
Android is sitting atop on other platforms because of its ability to get updates instantly. The best feature that separates Android from iOS, Windows is the update facility is offered to customers. Most often the updates run in the backgrounds and most often the updates won’t be received by all Android phones at the same instant.
In general Android updates are rolled out slowly on different devices. Google has reasons why it releases the updates not all at once. The reason is quite simple. Yes, Google generally tests the performance of updates on a small fraction of smartphone devices, and only after assuring that the feedback is reliable and good, it starts to roll out the update on a large number of devices.
Unlike the Windows phones which allow downloads to install directly to the mobiles and seeks user permission, Android users were provided with installation available on the home screen of the devices which users can allow or deny. After allowing the installation on the devices, the users can check out whether the update is received on devices.
Now let’s have a look at how this new update installation is carried out by users on Android devices.
Step 1: Turn your phone on and check the home screen
Step 2: Open “Settings” in the app drawer
Step 3: Navigate to the option “About Phone”
Step 4: Find and select the option “System Updates”
Step 5: A drop-down menu will open up. Select the “Check Now” option
Step 6: Upon clicking, you’ll find out whether your phone has got any updated information
Step 7: Confirm the update and allow it to install
Step 8: Your new update will be configured to the device in no time
The update process is completely safe and secure as well. With the recent update being Android 4.4 KitKat rolled out on Nexus 5 devices, the performance of the devices has been doubled phenomenally.
In fact, it is reported that two more updates Android 4.4.1 and even Android 4.4.2 are rolled out and it has been a great piece of news for Android lovers all around the world.
However, it is evident that the Android update 4.3 Jelly Bean was found to be more successful compared to Android 4.4 KitKat, as it carried a lot of issues that caused serious troubles to customers. But, it is also true that Google is working on the issues and sooner or later they’d be hitting the market with updates having no issues.
Also, the Android 4.4.2 update is proved to be focused on Nexus users and Google has made this update highly beneficial for Android users. As the rollouts of both of the updates are happening back-to-back, it is transparent that the Android 4.4.1 update isn’t up to the mark of users.
