How to update an Android phone to the latest operating system

People who own an Android phone and want to continue using WhatsApp after November 1, can update it by following several steps.

First, they will need to connect their devices to a reliable wifi signal.

Next, open the Settings tab and select About Phone, which should have the option to “Check for Updates” when a new OS is available.

All they have to do is click on the “Install Now” or “Install Overnight” option.

How to update iPhone to the latest operating system

Updating an iPhone is quite simple, but people need to keep their phones plugged in.

Users need to open the Settings tab, then click General and Software Update.

They may have more than one option available, from which they can choose or install together.

iPhones also come with an option to allow automatic updates. This option can be found by reopening the “Software Update” tab in Settings.

They can turn on automatic updates by clicking on the option there and selecting the “Download iOS updates” and “Install iOS updates” toggles.

Clicking it will allow automatic updates, but some changes may require manual installation.
