FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air)

Firmware Over-The-Air (FOTA) is a Mobile Software Management (MSM) technology in which the operating firmware of a mobile device is wirelessly upgraded and updated by its manufacturer. FOTA-capable phones download upgrades directly from the service provider. The process usually takes three to 10 minutes, depending on connection speed and file size.

FOTA removes the need of special cables, computers or third-party programs.
