Introduction

HKC tablets are low-cost tablets running the Android operating system. HKC tablets come in a variety of colors and don't boast as many features or the slick performance of higher-end Android tablets. However, keeping your HKC tablet's firmware up to date ensures your device is running the most recent version of the Android operating system the tablet supports, which includes the addition of any new features the tablet supports. Further, updating your HKC tablet is also a way for the developer to fix known errors with the device's software. You can update your HKC tablet through the Settings app.
