Installing the update will enhance the software version to 14.5.A.0.270, which should bundle the changes that includes better performance, speed and bug fixes that exist in Xperia Z3 and Z2.

Meanwhile, the update for the older Xperia Z series (a 1.2GB mammoth of a download) contains Lollipop's most notable additions, that is Material Design, lock screen notifications, user profiles, and moving apps to SD cards.
The Lollipop updates should be available over the air and via Sony's desktop software around the world soon. But remember that the timing and availability of the update will vary depending on market and carrier.
