How to check for the software update




The easiest way to update your Vivo S1 to Android 11 is to check for the software update over the air (OTA). This method does not require any PC or Laptop, and it is very simple and convenient. Here are the steps to follow:

  • Simply grab the Android 11 version by downloading and installing it.



Tips before updating




Before you proceed with the OTA update, here are some tips that you should keep in mind:


  • Make sure to charge your device more than 50%. Updating your device with low battery can cause problems or even brick your device.
