Nokia Lumia 820 - Why should I update my Nokia Lumia phone software?

Just like a computer, your phone uses software to run. By making sure you always have the latest version of this software, you get:

  • performance improvements to things like battery life and applications
  • new and improved functions
  • the latest versions of Nokia applications and services
  • bug fixes

With Windows Phone 8, your Lumia automatically checks for updates on a weekly basis. To change the settings, or manually check for updates, just tap Settings > Phone Update.

If you have Lumia 505, 510, 610, 710, 800 or 900, set your phone to notify you about available updates, select Settings > phone update > Notify me when new updates are found.
