Update your BlackBerry 10 OS

Updating your OS is free and easy

Download the latest available version of BlackBerry® 10 OS to discover new features, optimized battery life and more. If you already have version 10.2.1, you may receive updates automatically, but if not, the process is still free and easy to do over a Wi-Fi® network.


Upgrade your BlackBerry 10 OS to the latest 10.3.2 software to enable advanced new features, making your BlackBerry even more secure and productive.

Check out some of the new features and enhancements by browsing the tabs below.

Anti-theft protection in BlackBerry Protect

BlackBerry is the gold standard for privacy and security in smartphones. With BlackBerry 10 OS, version 10.3.2, your privacy and security are fortified even further with the anti-theft protection feature in BlackBerry® Protect™1, which allows you to fully disable the device if it is lost or stolen. This ensures that the device cannot be wiped and reactivated by someone else.

The power of BlackBerry on your computer and tablet

Use BlackBerry® Blend™ to access your work and personal email, BBM, text messages, notifications, documents, calendar, contacts and media in real time on whatever device you are on.

With BlackBerry Blend 1.2, your productivity across devices is amplified with the addition of spell check, the ability to reply directly from within Blend notification pop-ups, and visual enhancements to file transfers. It also provides a fresh, new design based on customer feedback.

More ways to access apps

Goodbye app envy. On BlackBerry® 10 OS, versions 10.3 and higher, you can download and install both Android™ and BlackBerry apps. Access great business and productivity apps through BlackBerry® World® and the latest Android games and apps through the Amazon Appstore.2 Whether it’s for work, or for play, you’ll find just the apps for you.

Your personal assistant

New with BlackBerry 10 OS v10.3, BlackBerry® Assistant allows you to manage your email, contacts, calendar and other BlackBerry 10 features through voice and text commands. It helps you to execute tasks quickly such as responding to important emails, scheduling a meeting or getting directions.

BlackBerry Assistant is intelligent enough to respond to you based on your situation. Speak freely to it and it will respond in kind. Type a query and it will respond simply with information on the screen. When you’re connected to Bluetooth in the car, it knows you can’t look at the screen and will interact with you completely eyes and hands free.
