Update your Amazon Kindle by Tuesday or get disconnected

Only if yours is offline lying somewhere


Got an Amazon Kindle? Better start checking if yours has been updated to the latest version because if it isn’t, Amazon is going to disconnect your device for good after 22nd March 2016. Which also means you won’t be able to download Kindle books from Amazon if your device still uses an outdated software.

If you regularly purchase and download Kindle books or have the Wi-Fi set to always on, it won’t affect your device since Amazon regularly sends software updates and installs automatically. It will only affect your Kindle if you happen to leave your device in Aeroplane Mode or turn off Wi-Fi option all the time, or if your Kindle is sitting somewhere in the house out of battery or unconnected.

Amazon has also stated if you fail to update the device by this Tuesday, you will receive the following message:

However, you will still be able to manually update the software for your device and get everything on your Kindle back to working order after that. You can find the latest software from this Amazon’s Help page.
