Looking to update Android on your HONOR phone? Do not worry, because this simple guide will help you get it right.
As with most things, it is best to keep up to date. This is especially true with your HONOR phone, because updates will help to fix any little bugs, add new features and enhance the security and operation of your device.
There are a few things you should know about updating your HONOR phone, so let's start there.
When updating your HONOR phone, you should make sure that the battery is charged to at least 30%. It's very important that the power does not run out on your phone while the update is performed, otherwise it can damage your phone. Remember, you are updating the code that allows your smartphone to actually run, so it's crucial to follow this advice. In fact, the safest thing to do is plug your phone in to its charger before you start.
Similarly, don't power off or restart your phone for the same reasons.
If you have a MicroSD card, don't remove it during the update. And, if you plan to update it via your computer, keep it plugged in via USB for the whole duration of the update.
Android updates can be quite big files. It is at the heart of your HONOR phone, after all. If you are planning to update and you don't have a lot of data to spare, it would be wise to make sure that you are connected to a wi-fi network before you initiate the update.
There are two ways in which you can update Android on your HONOR phone. The first – and simplest – is to update it online direct from your phone. To do this, go to Settings, then Updater. This will take you to a screen that will show you which version you are currently running. Underneath that is a button entitled 'check for updates'. Select this and you will be updated in no time.
The other method of updating your phone is to use HiSuite on a computer. HiSuite is a useful piece of software that works with your HONOR phone for precisely this sort of thing.
If you plan to go for this method, first make sure that you have the latest version of HiSuite installed on your computer. Then, connect your phone to HiSuite and click Update on your computer. HiSuite will search for any updates for your particular phone. From there, you can update really easily by following the process on your computer.
When your update is complete, your phone will automatically restart. Then, you will be able to enjoy the fruits of your labour: your phone will be completely up to date and ready for you to use once again. As long as you remember those golden rules from earlier in this guide, it should be plain sailing!
