Phone manufacturers often offer updates to their phones and firmware some time after the original product has been released and Sony Mobile is not an exception to that.
With Sony Mobile Update Service, you are provided with a tool which can interact with your Xperia cell phone, perform data backups to your PC, interact with multimedia stored on your phone and perform firmware updates which connect you to official Sony services.
One main thing to note is that when you update your phone firmware, you may be able to take advantage of newer software offered by Google's Android ecosystem. On top of that, updating your phone or tablet with Sony Mobile Update Service can also offer potential performance and security enhancements.
There are a few things to know before trying to use this software to update your firmware and that is to make sure you have at least 50% battery life but more than 90% is optimal. You should also have you phone successfully connected with a USB cable after Windows has completed installing the relevant drivers to enable data transfer.
Sony Mobile Update Service will, after connected, let you know whether there are updates available for your particular model.
