Android up date

Post by mouse » Mon Nov 22, 2021 7:07 pm

My tablet was switched on October 2017 with android 7.1.1, how do I update it to version 8.1 as required by the new qr code scanning app.

Are you sure that it can be updated?

On my Android phone, it's in settings and then 'about phone'

Maybe have a dig about in there or google how to do it but ensure you enter the make and model of your tablet

I agree with JB.. Google it as to whether you can update your particular model, and how to do it..

Perhaps worth taking it to a phone shop such as Gadget House just up from Citizens Service Centre to see it it can be upgraded.

My tablet is on automatic update and according to Google it would have updated if that was possible . Seems current version of Android is 10
a suitable 10" replacement cheapest tablet starts from €150 or €250 for a samsung
