How do I update the software on my BlackBerry 10 device?

Software updates might not be available to you depending on your region and wireless service provider.

You should regularly create and save a device backup file on your computer, especially before you update any device software. Maintaining a current backup file on your computer might allow you to recover device data if your BlackBerry device is lost, stolen, or corrupted by an unforeseen issue.

  1. On the home screen, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap Settings > Software Updates.
  3. Tap Check for Updates.
You can also update your device software using BlackBerry Link. For more information, see the Help documentation for BlackBerry Link.
