Whenever there is a system update available, your Samsung device will send you a notification to download and install the update. But some people choose to ignore this notification. For one reason or another, you think you can avoid installing the update for a while.

Maybe you don't have a Wi-Fi connection or maybe you don't have the necessary storage space to complete the update process. Even more, people ignore the update thinking that upgrades don't matter anymore and think it is just a way to introduce new features on to the device that they don't need.

But a Samsung system update is about far more than just the new features it introduces into your device. In fact, the new features are just sort of the icing on the cake and the significant security and privacy enhancements an update brings are the most important reason to never ignore the Samsung system update notification. An update is designed to improve the way your device works and therefore it is very important.

Option 1. The Best Samsung System Update Software

Part of the reasons most people choose to ignore a Samsung system update is the perceived difficulty in or after the process of installing the update on the device.

But what if there is a program that can easily locate the latest firmware update for your device and then seamlessly install it on the device and fix the potential issues in just a few simple clicks?

Well, there is a program designed to do just that and it is known as iMyFone Fixppo for Android. This program's primary purpose is to help fix all Android system issues and to do that, the program installs the proper firmware on your device first.

This makes it the ideal solution when looking for a tool that will easily install the latest firmware on your device especially when your device doesn't notify you or you can't install the update in the old fashioned way. The following are just some of the program's features:

  • It is the best Android OS repair tool and it utilizes the most advanced technology to fix all system and software issues with your device.

  • It supports all Samsung device models including the Samsung Galaxy S10 and all versions of Android.

Step 1: Download and install iMyFone Fixppo for Android on your computer and launch the program. Click on "Start" in the main window to begin the process.


Step 2: In the next interface, enter all the details about your device and confirm that the information you provided is correct before clicking "Download Firmware". The program will download the latest firmware and extract it for you.


Step 3: Now connect the Samsung device to the computer using USB cables and then put the device in Download mode.

Option 2. Perform Samsung System Update via Settings

If your device is functioning correctly, you can, of course, choose to use your device's settings to update it.  Before you attempt a Samsung update via the settings, make sure that you meet the following requirements: 

  • Ensure that you are using a strong, proper and stable Wi-Fi network to avoid interrupting the process.

  • The battery should be at more than 50% capacity.

  • You must have at least 1GB of storage space available on your device.

  • Don't remove the battery during the process.

  • A rooted Samsung device cannot be updated via this method.

If you meet all the above requirements, follow the steps to update your Samsung device via settings: 

Step 1: Open Settings on your Samsung device.

Step 2: Tap on "About Device -> Software Update".

Step 3: If an update is available, tap on "Update" to begin the process. 


Option 3. Perform Samsung System Update via Kies

You may also be able to update your Samsung device using the Samsung Kies software. Before attempting to update the device using Kies, it is important to back up all your existing data just in case something goes wrong and all your data is erased during the process. Here's how to update your Samsung system using Samsung Kies: 

Step 1: Install Samsung Kies on to your computer. If you are running Android 4.3 or later, you need to install Kies 3 and if you are running a system older than 4.3, you need to install Kies 2.6.

Step 2: Launch whatever version of Samsung Kies you have installed on your device and then connect the Samsung device to the computer using USB cables. Once the program recognizes the device, click on "Firmware Upgrade" to begin the process.

Step 3: Check the box marked "I have read all the above information" and then click on "Start Upgrade".

Step 4: Kies will download and install the latest firmware components on the device. When the process is complete, click "OK" and then disconnect your device from the computer.


Option 4. Perform Samsung System Update via Samsung Experience Shops

You also have the option to visit a Samsung shop near you and ask for a software upgrade. Samsung experience shops are the ultimate customer support solution designed to help Samsung device holders with any issues they may be facing.

At the shop, you will find a qualified Samsung consultant who will be able to help you update your device easily. This solution is ideal for those who have a particularly difficult time updating the device and can't seem to get it to work. But the Samsung experience shops are not available everywhere.


The solutions above will each help you update your Samsung device's system. Choose from the choices above that best suits your needs and circumstances. Let us know in the comments section below if you experience any other issues on this topic.
