Android 5.1 Lollipop is the most significant jump forward we have ever seen from Android OS. It has a dramatic new look dubbed Material Design, a revamped notification system, substantial battery saving improvements, enhanced security, as well as performance tweaks to make movies, music, games and apps fly faster than ever.
It will take some times to reach the Android 5.1 OTA (over the air) update notification on your Moto X 2013. If not received, you can check it manually and install it. For a successful installation, you need to connect your phone to a Wi-Fi network and require at least 50% battery charging on it.
If you have received the notification message, just select ‘Yes, I’m in’. It will download the OS. Once download completed, select ‘Install now’. After completing the installation, your Moto X will re-start automatically.
Now, if you have not received the update notification message, follow the steps below to update your Moto X 2013 manually.
1. Go to phone Settings -> About phone -> System updates.
2. Select ‘Yes, I’m in’. After the OS is downloaded, select ‘Install now’.
