Even if you have the best Android phone ever, updating your phone is still extremely important. Software updates bring improved security, new features and sometimes even a complete visual overhaul thanks to new versions of the Android platform. Everyone likes to receive updates, and often your phone will notify you automatically. On Huawei phones, the update process is as easy as it is on most Android devices. Here’s how to manage updates on your Huawei or Honor device.
How to update your Huawei phone software
Whether you have a Huawei P40 Pro, Mate 40, or whatever, updating the software is pretty straightforward. Here’s what the whole process looks like.
- Open the Settings application on your phone.
- Faucet System.
- Faucet Software update.
Faucet Check for updates to manually see if an update is available.
If you want even more control over your software updates, press the button settings icon in the upper right corner of the update page. Here you’ll find settings to automatically download updates when you’re connected to a Wi-Fi network, as well as an option for updates to automatically install on your phone overnight (between 2:00 a.m. and 4:00 a.m. ).
Before you head to the manual update, it’s important to note that some Huawei and Honor phone models may not update without a SIM card inserted. If you expect an update to be available but you don’t see one, try inserting a SIM card and repeating the above steps. Other than that, the updating process is as smooth as butter.
Huawei p40 pro
Amazing hardware with crippled software
By almost all accounts, the Huawei P40 Pro is an exceptional handset. It has a beautiful OLED display, fast performance, excellent battery life and a robust camera system that is sure to impress. Unfortunately without official support for Google apps / services this is a difficult recommendation if you live in the United States.
