Download & Install Software Updates Automatically

Sync your Kindle Fire HD 7" to download the latest software update automatically.

Your Kindle Fire needs to be fully charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network before you can download the software update.

Swipe down from the top of the screen to open Quick Settings, and then tap Sync. The software update automatically downloads in the background, and installs after the download is complete and the device is asleep. Your Kindle Fire will restart during the software update. After the restart, the message "Kindle is upgrading" will appear on the screen.
