Updating the apps installed on your Windows Phone is pretty easy, with many apps automatically downloading software updates and installing them as long as permission has been granted. When it comes to updating the actual Windows Phone operating system that runs on your phone, you will need to hook up your phone to your PC to be able to successfully install updates.
Though not the most convenient of set-ups, updating the software of your Windows Phone, be it a Lumia or an HTC handset, is still pretty straightforward. Of course you’ll need to have Zune installed on your computer, clear enough space both on your phone and your computer, have your cable on hand, and have access to decent internet connection speeds.
If all this sounds to complicated for you, you can just follow the Windows Phone step-by-step guide on updating your phone’s software. Really, all you need to do follow the steps and you’ll have an updated software in no time. It’s quite easy and a lot less harder than trying to figure out than financial investments.
