How to Update Software on Vivo Phone: What to Do Next?

In this guide, we will show you how to update software on Vivo phones in a few simple steps. We will also explain why software updates are important and what to do before and after updating your phone.

Why Software Updates are Important

Software updates are essential for your Vivo phone because they can:

  • Fix bugs and glitches that may affect your phone’s performance, stability, or security.
  • Add new features or improve existing ones that can enhance your user experience and productivity.
  • Optimize your phone’s battery life, memory usage, and compatibility with other devices or apps.
  • Protect your phone from malware, viruses, or hackers that may try to exploit vulnerabilities in the software.

Therefore, it is recommended that you check for software updates regularly and install them as soon as they are available.

What to do Before Updating your Phone

Before you update your phone’s software, you should:

  • Back up your important data such as contacts, messages, photos, videos, or documents. You can use the built-in backup app on your Vivo phone or a third-party app of your choice. You can also transfer your data to a computer or an external storage device.
  • Make sure your phone has enough battery power (over 30%) or connect it to a charger. Updating your phone’s software may take some time and consume a lot of battery. If your phone runs out of power during the update process, it may cause problems or damage your phone.
  • Connect your phone to a stable Wi-Fi network or use your mobile data plan. Downloading software updates may require a large amount of data, so make sure you have a reliable and fast internet connection. You can also check your data usage and limit it if needed in the settings of your phone.

How to Update Your Phone’s Software

There are two ways to update your phone’s software: online and offline.

Online Update

This is the easiest and most convenient way to update your phone’s software. You can check for software updates online and download them directly to your phone. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Go to Settings on your Vivo phone and click on System Update. You can also swipe down from the top of the screen and click on the System update icon in the notification panel.
  • Your phone will automatically check for software updates and show you the available version, size, and description of the update. If there is no update available, you will see a message saying “Your system is up to date”.
  • If there is an update available, click on Download to start downloading the update file. You can see the progress and status of the download in the notification panel. You can also pause or resume the download if needed.
  • Once the download is complete, click on Install to start installing the update. Your phone will reboot and enter the update mode. You will see a progress bar and a message saying “Installing system update“. Do not turn off your phone or interrupt the update process.
  • When the update is complete, your phone will reboot again and enter the normal mode. You will see a message saying “System update successful”. You can also check the software version and date in the System update settings.

Offline Update

This is another way to update your phone’s software. You can download the updated file from the official Vivo website and transfer it to your phone’s storage or SD card. Then, you can install the update manually from your phone. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the official Vivo website and select your product model from the list. You can also search for your model by typing its name or number in the search box.
  1. On the product page, click on Support and then on System Update. You will see the latest software version, size, and description of the update. You will also see a link to download the update file.
  1. Click on the link to download the update file to your computer. The file will be in a ZIP format and have a name like “PDxxxxx_update.zip”.
  1. Connect your phone to your computer using a USB cable or a card reader. Make sure your phone is in the file transfer mode and not in the charging mode.
  1. Copy the update file to the root directory of your phone’s storage or SD card. The root directory is the first thing you see when you open a file explorer on your phone or computer. Do not put the file in a folder or unzip it.
  1. Disconnect your phone from your computer and go to Settings on your phone. Click on System Update and then on the menu icon in the top right corner. Select Local Update from the menu.
  1. Your phone will scan your storage or SD card and show you the updated file. Click on the file to select it and then click on Install to start installing the update.

Your phone will reboot and enter the update mode. Follow the same steps as in the online update method from step 4 to step 6.
