What to do if Shift Won't Update

  • Updated

If you're noticing that you're constantly being prompted by Shift (every day or more) to update to the newest version, this is typically an indication that the update is not installing successfully. For context, a new update is released on average, once every 2-3 weeks. Keep reading for how to fix this!

  1. Navigate to Quick Settings (top-right corner of Shift, gear icon)
