    Hello, I am still learning the way Android does things and unlearning the iOS way with my brand Pixel 4a and my first Android smartphone.

    It is only by pure chance that while browsing the different settings, I got to > System > Advanced and there at the very bottom of the Advanced screen, it surprised me to see the last item is System Update > System Update available (Android 11)

    Before getting deep down into the settings, I did not see any sign that a system update was available. Nothing visible on the System icon on my home screen to make me aware that something new is available for the system.

    Did I miss something? I am still on Android 10 and before I update to 11, can somebody tell me where is and how looks the hint on the Home Screen about an available update, so when a future update is available, I will be better aware.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi Jacques, welcome to Android and welcome to Android Forums! I think you'll be pleasantly surprised by Android, and your new abilities that iOS couldn't offer you.

    That said, I'm not sure about the Pixel 4a (except that the Pixel will be among the first devices to get a new Android version) update notifications, but you can always go to Settings -- About Phone -- Software Information and see the Android version you are currently on (likely 10). Going back to Settings -- Software Update -- Download and install, the phone will retrieve any new updates or security patches.

    I hope this helps. It's great to have you here!
