Software updates are a common thing with a lot of the tech out these days and the Playbook had seen a couple of updates since its release. Here is a quick walkthrough on how to update your Blackberry Playbook.

(You will notice in the video I've already done this part and hit the software update icon in the notification section so this part below is just giving you the steps in writing.)

The first step is that you'll need to check for software updates as it doesn't seem push notifications for them has been activated yet. You'll need to be connected to your wi-fi network and you will want to swipe down the settings menu on the home screen and then choose software update and then hit check for updates.

You'll see that one is available, the version number, size of the download and quick description of what is in it. Hit download to begin and depending on your network speed it could take between 2 to 10 minutes to download. Once download you will just need to hit install and let it go. If the battery is low you'll want to plug it into a power source so you don't lose power during the update. The Playbook will reboot once installed and to verify the installation you can swipe down the settings window and go to about and you'll see the current update version number. This is by far the easiest update I've ever done to a Blackberry device and a much better experience then during the unboxing and first setup.

There wasn't anything special in this current update and there wasn't a change log but I did notice the browser seemed to be a bit more responsive especially to pinch and zoom. Hopefully software updates for the Playbook will stay this simple.
