One of the reasons why a handset's performance slows down is because of the software that needs to be updated. Nokia Lumia 930 has an impressive quadcore processor and ran by the well-reviewed Windows Phone 8.1. It is important to update its software so you can get fresh new features and enjoy better performance.

Second, tap the notification message to view the update and start the installment. Just follow the instruction shown on your phone. You can either start the update immediately or or do it at a more convenient time. Remember that you will not be able to use your phone during the update installation.
Third, follow the update prompts. Updates take about 15 to 30 minutes. However, a major update takes about 2 hours. Before you start the update, make sure that you have enough battery power. Nokia advises that you should have at least 50 percent battery charge. It is best to connect to a charger.
Don't forget to make enough space on your phone for the update. Nokia recommends 1.5GB free phone memory. Got to Settings then click storage sense to check your remaining free space.
Your phone may restart several times during the installation. This is completely normal so you don't have anything to worry about.
There might be additional app updates to fully enable new features on your phone. These are available at the Store app. You will receive these app updates on the Store app once the software update is done.
