  • Connect devices such as a Typing cover or a docking station before you begin any updates
  • This way you will not face any compatibility issues later on
  • Always make use of a Wi-Fi connection for such updates; these updates cannot happen via a mobile broadband network as it is a metered connection
  • If you do not have a Wi-Fi connection, then change the settings in your mobile network
