Update Your Kindle Soon or It'll Lose Internet Connection

Recently, Amazon posted an urgent notice about a critical update for Kindle e-readers.

Users are then directed to ensure they are within range of a wireless network and try the update again. The Kindle can then be updated by going to the Settings menu and choosing "Update Your Kindle".

Don't worry, though: You can still update your Kindle manually. Amazon has a critical message to tell you, so you better take heed.

Failing to update will result in this message being shown: "Your Kindle is unable to connect at this time".

Amazon is warning its customers that they need to update their old Kindle eReaders by Tuesday, March 22 to avoid disconnection from the internet. Generations 1, 2, 3 and 4, from 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2012 respectively, also come under the scope of the update.

It advises that the device may restart multiple times during the update process. The version number relevant to their device can be found on Amazon's support page. Any magazine or newspaper subscriptions won't arrive and if you use your Kindle for other cloud-based tasks such as reading email, that won't work either.

Those users will have to install the update manually. But the rest of your books won't be and you won't have access to them.

All Kindles download and install the latest updates automatically if they're connected to Wi-Fi while asleep.

"People who have Kindles made before 2012 need to update their software by March 22 or lose Internet connectivity, Amazon announced". The company insists that users update to the latest version as soon as possible - so much so that it has set a deadline for updates on old Kindle devices.

As Amazon has been saying for a while, there's an important Kindle update that has to be installed by March 22.
