FOTA stands for Firmware Over The Air. This is a standard process where device firmware (may also be called device software) is updated usually over Wi-Fi several times a year. The firmware may be a major operating system (OS) update or it may have new device features or bug fixes or security patches. Premium devices will often get updates almost monthly. When the update installs, it will reboot the phone and be offline for about 10-25 minutes.
