Beacons with available updates are shown in BC Reveal with a blue advertisement (dot) next to the beacon's serial number.
You can also sort beacons by those with available updates after selecting the search icon (in the top right hand corner and pressing the updates sort filter.
Starting the Firmware Update
Select the beacon you wish to update, and select Update Firmware and then select update.
This will being the firmware updating process which may take several minutes.  Keep your screen active to prevent your device from falling asleep as this can cause the update to fail. 

Once the beacon is updated, you will need to apply a settings update to return the beacon to its original settings.
