Yesterday night, when I open the cover of my Kindle paperwhite, it displayed the updating screen.

So it is automatically update. We call it OTA update, or over-the-air update.

 

Now it is version 5.11.1.1. I remembered I did a manual update last Augest. After that update, it was 5.9.7.

On my Kindle, the What’s New page shown two release version, 5.10.3 and 5.11.1.1.

Let’s have a look at the What’s New.

Version 5.11.1.1 – April 2019

New keyboard languages: Keyboard support added for Afrikaans, Danish, Icelandic, Norwegian and Swedish.

Version 5.10.3 – February 2019

Performance improvements and other general enhancements.

Here is the link to download the firmware for v5.11.1.1, if you don’t get the OTA update.

Upgrade my Kindle Paperwhite 7th

There is a new, free software update available for your Kindle Paperwhite (7th Generation). This update automatically downloads and installs on your Kindle Paperwhite when connected wirelessly; however, you can also manually download the software and transfer the update to your device via USB cable.

Of course, I always download the firmware from the official site and transfer the bin file of the new firmware to the root of the Kindle Paperwhite 7th generation.

Before the upgrade, the current version of my Kindle is v5.9.6.1
