Now it goes in rapid succession, after the Nova 5T and the partner 20 The long-awaited message about the definitive EMUI 12 of the P30 Pro has already arrived. Huawei finally brings the latest version of EMUI to one of its most popular smartphones.
As always, you still have to be patient, not all smartphones can be supplied immediately after launch. In the early days, only a few get it, so they can quickly stop the update if there’s still a bug, and only then does it really get going. Distribution usually takes three to four weeks, and if you’re unlucky and end up at the bottom of the list, you’ll unfortunately have to wait a bit longer.
If the update is still not there, you can try these tips: https://www.huaweiblog.de/news/5-tips-bei-updateproblemen-auf-huawei-geraeten/. The article is a bit older, but the first three tips in particular are still valid, except that the support app is now called “My Huawei”. If the update waits and does not arrive despite suggestions, there may be a software and/or hardware issue with your device. In this case, you should contact support or if you can, visit a service center and have your smartphone checked.

The EMUI 12 update has a size of 4.57GB, That is very big. Even if you have that much data, you probably don’t want to use it all in one update. Therefore, I advise you to download via WLAN.
Also, before you start with EMUI 12, you should curb your impatience and anticipation for a moment, and if you don’t have automatic data backup, do a quick backup of at least the most important data. You can find the function in the Settings in System → Backup and Restore.
