We always recommend that you run the latest firmware in your AMPLIFi amplifier. Your AMPLIFi Remote application will inform you whenever a firmware update is available, so you'll always know you have the latest version! Follow the instructions below to update the firmware of your AMPLIFi.

**Before getting started ensure that your iOS device has a consistent connection to a cellular or wifi network. We recommend to make sure your iOS device has at least a 50% charge on the battery or plug your iOS device into it's power supply to prevent the iOS device from shutting down during the update. While performing the update we also recommend that leave your iOS device idle within close proximity and unobstructed line of sight of the AMPLIFi to avoid interruptions in the updating process.
