Nokia promised the Symbian Anna update would be heading out to Nokia Symbian^3 users in August, and it’s been true to its word. We’re sure you’ve been reading all about the faster web browser, attractive new icons, portrait-style on-screen keyboard, improved Nokia Maps and all the other features Symbian Anna brings to existing Nokia smartphones – and now it’s time to experience them for yourself.

Because the Symbian Anna update is quite a large file, you need to use Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC to download and install it – it’s a simple three-step process, and will be over in no time.

Installing Symbian Anna in 3 easy steps

Step 1

To prepare your PC to download the update, open Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC and sign in to your Ovi account. Now connect your Symbian^3 smartphone to your PC using a USB cable.

Step 2

Once Nokia Ovi Suite recognises your phone, you should also see a Software Update notification icon along the icons toolbar at the top of the screen. Click on this icon, or alternatively click on the Tools menu and select Software updates.

Step 3

You’ll now see an Update available notification next to your phone, along with an Install button. Click on this button, and a second page will come up that should detail the Symbian Anna update in parts 1 of 2 and 2 of 2, with ticks against their boxes. Click on the Install button and Nokia Ovi Suite will take care of the rest, installing both updates without any further action required by you.

And that’s it! All you need to do now is disconnect your phone, reboot it and once it restarts you’re Symbian Anna update will be up and running. Welcome to your new brand new Nokia!
