  4. Dry your device: After cleaning, use a dry microfiber cloth to remove any moisture.

Software Maintenance

Keeping your device's software updated can significantly impact its performance.

Follow these steps to ensure your Google Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro is running the latest software:

  1. Connect to Wi-Fi: Software updates can be large, so it's best to connect to Wi-Fi to avoid depleting your mobile data.
  2. Go to Settings: Navigate to the 'Settings' menu on your Google Pixel 7 or Pixel 7 Pro.
  3. Scroll to System: Scroll down to the 'System' option and tap on it.
  4. Tap on Advanced: Within the 'System' menu, tap on 'Advanced' to expand the options.
  5. Tap on System Update: Finally, tap on 'System Update' to check if there are any available updates for your device. If there are, follow the on-screen prompts to install.

Remember, regular updates not only provide new features but also improve security and fix any potential bugs.
