Android Engineer Explains Why Mashing “Check for Updates” on Nexus Devices Isn’t Helping You | Droid Life
We are Android users. When an updated version of the OS becomes available, we want it right then and now. When we don’t see it in a timely manner, we start becoming anxious. This anxiety leads to many users overusing the “Check for Updates” button under the system settings menu, which usually leads to nothing. If continuously mashing doesn’t work, the next step we usually suggest is to clear data from your Google Services Framework apk, which is found under your system settings menu as well. As it turns out, each of these steps aren’t helping you get the update any quicker, and could potentially be hurting your chances as a result. A Googler took to Reddit to explain this process, and offers advice for those who always have to be running the latest version of Android.
