To update your operating system you'll need to be connected to WiFi - this is to avoid using excess mobile data.

Your phone will download any available updates and install them to your device. While the update is downloading you will still be able to use the phone. Once the update is downloaded you'll be prompted to Install & Restart.

TIP: Your device will not download the update if there is not enough internal storage available to apply the update. Your device must also have over 20% battery in order to install an update. Wait patiently while the update is installing to your device and the restart is complete. Do not turn off your device during this period to avoid data loss.
