With only 25MB in size, the update can be easily installed over either 3G or 4G mobile connectivity on the go. However, if you are located in an area which is not covered properly by your service provider then you need to switch over to Wi-Fi.

To download and install the July security update, you need to tap on the message notification. It will take nearly one week for the update to hit your handset depending upon the location. You can also manually check the update by tapping the Settings button.

The only point to note is that you need to charge the smartphone up to 85 percent before initiating the download process. Although you can install the update with 30 percent charge, it is advisable to charge to the maximum level to avoid interruption.
