If you're anything like me, you are constantly checking for new software updates on your BlackBerry Z10.

I always feel like I'll miss out if I don't check manually, even though I know well that I'll get an alert when a new version is ready to download.

Granted, new OS updates don't come out all that often, but I still don't want to miss out and be one of the first to grab them when they do arrive.

It's usually part of my morning routine after I check over my emails -- I jump into the software updates and check manually to make sure I'm not missing out.

Keep reading to see how you can manually check for new OS updates on your BlackBerry 10 device.
