Current Nexus smartphones can not install updates in background




Current Nexus devices do not get the feature to install updates in the background. Google has added the feature to the third preview of Android N, but it would require an update from a PC to work on current phones.

Installing updates while the power is on, requires a redundant system partition and before the phone should be re-partitioned. That can only update via a PC, says Google from Android Police.

In addition, would be too much hassle, so Google has chosen to install the updates in the current manner. For this, the phone is turned off. On Chrome OS is it has long been customary to carry out the system partition in half and in this way to install updates to the background.

The update function in the background while the Android device is turned on is in the third preview of Android N, which Google online Wednesday dropped . Those redundant partition makes it safer update. If the update fails, the user can fall back on the still-functioning another partition to boot the device. That is so far in Android does not, although in many cases other ways to restore a previous firmware on a phone.

Because earlier in Android N Google already compiler gave an update so that future apps need not be compiled at startup and update, something that resulted in the ‘Optimising apps’ notification which stands minutes into view updates. Instead of a ‘ahead of time’ compiler Google now uses a combination of ‘ahead of time’ and ‘just in time’. This also makes installation of apps faster.
