Older editions of Amazon’s famous e-readers will end being capable to be link to Internet unless the software is upgraded as soon as possible. The enhancement is required for first gen of Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite that was launched back in 2012 along with all other Kindle editions that were launched before it.
The company is warning its clients to set up the upgrade before Mar 22. Without the upgrade, it might be a lot more difficult to include eBooks to their gadget because it will not be capable to be linked to Kindle Store and instantly synchronize it with Amazon Cloud.
On paper, the Kindle will be automatically upgraded if it is linked to a Wi-Fi router while it rests. But if the owner only uses its system for the casual vacation, there is a good possibility that it has not gotten the latest edition of the app.
After the deadline, these products will need a manual upgrade including a USB wire and linking them to PC or Macs at sometime in the upcoming weeks. People can read Amazon’s guidelines on its official website in order to make sure that they receive all of these updates at the right time.
What they will have to do vary a little bit based on which version they are using, but it generally relates to linking the system to the online worlds, telling it to synchronize or then making it to connect overnight.
If a user ends up losing the upgrade due date, not all everything is lost, even if they have more tasks to do. An error message would begin to show up on the gadget saying that the Kindle cannot connect to the Internet right now.
The customer is asked to make sure that he is within Wi-Fi range and attempt again. If this issue continues, the owner is told to reboot the Kindle from its menu in configurations and try once more. There is another work-around in case the user was not capable to fix the gadget soon enough, but it is a tad more work intensive.
They will have to personally upgrade the Kindle system by installing the application from the computer and shifting it into the e-reader while it is linked via the USB connection. The source for that critical application update is not entirely certain, but the journalists have requested Amazon to offer more information about it.
