How do I update my phone software?
We periodically release Windows Phone software updates to add new features you've asked for and to maximise your phone's performance. When a software update is available for you to download, we'll notify you on your phone.
To learn what's included in each update and determine which version of Windows Phone you have now, see Phone updates FAQ.
- If your phone uses Windows Phone 7 software, it can't be updated to Windows Phone 8. See Which version of Windows Phone do I have? if you're not sure what's on your phone.
- If you use a Mac, you'll need to use the Windows Phone application for Mac (formerly the Windows Phone Connector for Mac). To learn more, see Synchronising and getting updates with your Mac.
- Windows 8 Pro supports the Zune software, but Windows RT does not.
