You can instantly update your phone to the latest version as these phones come under the list of Android 13 supported devices. This is because Google released the official update on 15th August 2022. 

Android 13 has long been in the works and surely has many tech enthusiasts excited. Although Google first launched the Android 13 beta back in February, this version was only for developers. Nevertheless, after letting the developers get exclusive access to the beta version, Google expanded the beta to the public in April. Now, August brings us the official version of Android 13. 

Android 13 brings about a variety of upgrades compared to Android 12. With enhanced performance, better privacy features, and easier accessibilities, this update undoubtedly improves the user experience.

Once you finish signing up, you can install an over-the-air (OTA) update of the latest version of this beta program. Although, do ensure that you back up your phone before doing so. This is essential because beta versions still require improvements, hence can cause glitches. Therefore, if your phone glitches, then chances are that you end up losing your valuable data (if not backed up).

Here is a generalized list of steps that you could follow to download the beta program. However, these steps may vary slightly amongst different smartphones:

  • Firstly, transfer the firmware to the phone’s storage.
  • Then, enable developer mode on your phone.
  • Following this, in your phone’s setting, go to Software Update > upper right corner Settings > then select the preferred installation package manually.
  • Select the firmware package you downloaded and press installment once loaded.
  • Once it gets verified, your phone will automatically restart and update.

Once you are done trying out the beta program, you can always go to Google’s Android Beta page and go back to Android 12. For this, you simply have to press “Opt out” on the Android Beta page. Henceforth, you will be back to your original version. However, this would result in all locally saved data being lost. Hence, once again, it is essential to back up your phone before doing so.
