Thanks for this. My mum has an older kindle. I will make sure she knows to update.

Also thanks from me. The newer models upgrade themselves but MIL has a 4th generation that we bought her in 2011 and DD has one tucked away in a drawer that she never uses but I should update it anyway.

I rang Amazon as I couldn't get DH's to update and they talked me through it, very helpful. Turned out he hadn't connected to WiFi for ages and so previous updates hadn't gone through so I had to do about 4 updates.

Dm has also had several reminders but thought she'd done it a few weeks ago. She's only had it about 6 months though, as a replacement for an older model.
