New icons will also be added in the menu options, according to BGR. Calendar and Contact apps will be integrated with the LinkedIn application, making it easy for the users to maintain their job profiles.

In order to manually check for updates, go to Settings>About phone>System update>Check for updates.

The update might take 15 to 20 minutes to complete the full process of installation. The device will be automatically rebooted after the file finishes downloading. Connect to a stable Wi-Fi connection to avoid excessive data charges.
