Android is the most popular operating system in the world, installed on millions – if not billions – of devices, from smartphones and tablets to smart appliances such as TVs and fridges.

First, this is an early developer preview, which means it's not intended for regular smartphone owners, but rather app developers who want to make sure their products work with Android 7.0 N. So although you can expect some of the latest features of Android 7.0 N to work, such as bundled notifications and multi-window support, you should expect some bugs and errors as well.

Ensure that your device's built-in back-up feature is enabled – to do this go to Settings Backup & reset and make sure both 'Back up my data' and 'Automatic restore' are checked.

Connect your Xperia Z3

Next, make sure your Xperia Z3 is powered on and then plug it in to a USB port on your PC or Mac.

Download and install Android 7.0 N

Hold down the Alt key on your keyboard and click on 'Software repair', which is displayed on the home screen of the Xperia Companion software.

Once the Xperia Z3 has turned off, hold down the volume down key on the smartphone and plug it back into your computer.
