Starlink, being a relative newcomer, has made an indelible mark in the industry thanks to its no data cap policy and excellent network speeds.

And building up on their success, Starlink comes out with regular updates to keep their peripherals secure and well-updated on the changing geography of the networking world.

Since its launch, Starlink has come out with several updates addressing the shortcomings of an up-and-coming service, like tackling network-based issues and getting rid of bugs and errors.

Even if you're experiencing network issues, Starlink may have already gotten a whiff of the issue and could get it rectified with an upcoming update.

But what good is it to you if you can't narrow down whether your Starlink Terminal did update to the latest firmware version or not?

For that, you need to know how to check the status of your Starlink Firmware version. Here's how to do so:

From the table above, it's evident that Starlink does come out with updates ever so often.

And keeping a regular watch on the updates can be a taxing affair.

But before we can even start embarking on such a quest, we'll have to find the current version of the Starlink firmware.

Fortunately, you check up on the whereabouts of the Terminal firmware right from the Starlink app.

Follow these steps to do so:

1. Open the Starlink app and log in to your account.

2. Tap open the Settings tab.

3. Select the Advanced option.

4. Scroll to the Starlink tile to know the current firmware version of the Terminal.

You could also check the Uptime to know the date and time of the last update.

Even if Uptime doesn't elaborate on the exact date and time of the update, you do get to know the last time the Terminal was updated.

Next, let's take a closer look at how to update Starlink.

How to Update Starlink Firmware

How to Update Starlink Firmware

Usually, electronic gadgets require user authentication to trigger an update.

Contrary to the usual, networking and surveillance systems are designed to undergo an update regardless of user interaction.

Starlink, like many other networking services, updates automatically.

All you have to do is to ensure that the Terminal is powered ON and receiving a stable connection with the Starlink satellites.

Once an update is completed, the Terminal will reboot on its own, and the UpTime counter from the Advanced Settings menu will get reset to the date and time of the update hence completed.

Now, there have been reports floating around of users receiving notifications on the Starlink app to authenticate an update.

The legitimacy of such claims can be questionable, though.

Another notion sharing similar veracity is that rebooting the Terminal could trigger a firmware update.

Also, Starlink doesn't roll out updates simultaneously to all its customers. They are known to be sporadic and inconsistent.

And at times, many of the users may not even receive the update altogether.

The fact that you couldn't opt out of future updates could also annoy the conservatives among you.

And so, it's of the essence to keep the Starlink app updated at all times.

Follow these steps to check and update the Starlink app on your phone/tablet:

1. Open the Play Store and search for the Starlink app.

2. Tap open the Starlink app tab.

3. Select Update to start the process.

Open the app after updating it.

To do so, go to the Application store>Settings>Automatic Updates>Toggle ON.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How long does the Starlink update take?

The time taken to complete an update on a Starlink Terminal will depend on the size and the nature of the update. For smaller security patches, expect a time frame of about 5-10 minutes. For the more significant updates, expect it to take much longer.
