System Software Update

Always update your PS4™ system to the latest version of the system software. By updating, you'll enjoy additional features, improved usability, and enhanced security.

Select (Settings) > [System Software Update] to make sure your system has the latest version of the system software. If there is an update file for a later version, it automatically downloads.
You can continue to use your system while downloading. When downloading is complete, a notification message appears in the upper left corner of the screen. Select the message under (Notifications) > [Downloads] from the function area, and then follow the on-screen instructions to perform the installation.

Notice

  • Do not turn off your PS4™ system during the installation. Interrupting the installation could damage your system.
  • Update files might also be included on game discs. When you play a disc that contains a more recent version of the system software, a screen will be displayed to guide you through the update process. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform the update.
  • You can also use an update file stored on a USB storage device to update the system software. For details, visit the customer support website for your country or region.
