To be able to perform an update on a BQ phone, as in any other, it is necessary to have a minimum of free space to be able to download the files that are used to carry out the update. In case of not having enough storage, it is recommended to clean files that are not used. Find old photos, videos and tries to eliminate all the waste that is stored by web browsing, the use of social networks and any other application.

Of course, Also try removing old apps or apps that you hardly use anymore. Sometimes a lot of software accumulates that is not used and whose sole purpose ends up being to accumulate dust in your list of programs while consuming a space that can be useful to update.
