Just as expected, Amazon has released an over-the-air software update for Kindle Fire. It is said that the new version “enhances fluidity and performance,” improves touch navigation responsiveness, gives you the option to choose which items display on the carousel, and adds the ability to add a password lock on Wi-Fi access.
The update should arrive automatically to your Kindle Fire, but just in case that hasn’t happened, tap the Quick Settings icon, then “More,” and then “Device.” If your System Version is below 6.2.1, you don’t have the latest software and you can update.
To do that, make sure your Kindle is fully charged and connected to a Wi-Fi network, then tap the “Quick Settings” icon in the upper right corner of your device and then “Sync.” The software update will automatically download in the background and will be applied once download is complete and the device is asleep.
Alternatively, you could manually download and install the software update on your Kindle Fire using a USB cable. You can get all the details on how to do that from this page…
