FAQ/What is FOTA?


Firmware Over-The-Air, or "FOTA", is a way in which the firmware of a mobile device is updated wirelessly by the phone's manufacturer. Firmware runs in the background without any input from the user, and is there to make sure the phone's hardware runs properly. The process of downloading these updates wirelessly usually takes three to ten minutes, depending on the connection speed and the size of the update.
