Minecraft: Updating on PC, Android, and iOS
Thanks to many improvements made to Minecraft over the years, it is now easier than ever to update the game and get back to gameplay. Gone are the days of manually updating one's Java files or fiddling with their .Minecraft folder, all players need to do now is have a stable internet connection and a few moments of their time. By opening the new integrated Minecraft launcher or opening one's Google Play or Apple App Store library, updates can be implemented in short order.

Below, players can find the simplest ways to update their Minecraft client on each platform:
Updating Minecraft on PC Platforms
- With the new Minecraft launcher, Java Edition and Windows 10 Edition can be updated upon opening the program. If players don't possess this launcher, they should be able to download it on Minecraft.net. Once the launcher is opened, Minecraft programs will attempt to update automatically, so all players really need to do is wait. This launcher can even keep Minecraft Dungeons up to date.
Updating Minecraft on Consoles
- By default, most consoles will attempt to update Minecraft to the most recent version while connected to the internet. If players don't have their console set to download updates while their console is at rest, they may need to open their Minecraft program on their console. Typically, this will make the console begin downloading the newest update if it hasn't been done so already.

Updating on Android and iOS Devices
- For Android and iOS players, updating Minecraft is as simple as opening up their app store where they downloaded the game (usually Google Play or the Apple App Store) and heading to their app library. Apps requiring an update to their software typically appear listed alongside installed apps, and all players need to do is tap the "update" button listed along with their Minecraft app. After a brief moment, the application should be ready for gameplay. Sometimes even opening the Minecraft app can bring players to their app store to ask them to update if they haven't done so previously.
