How to upgrade the M15:

The player supports online upgrade. If a new firmware is available and detected (with the player connected to Internet), you will find the update notification in the notification center. Then you can tap on it to enter the update menu for online upgrading.
If there's no update notification found, you can open the "Technical Support" app, enter the "Firmware Update" menu, then tap the "Check for updates" icon to check manually.
Also, the player can be upgraded locally using firmware package: Download the firmware file from FiiO website then copy the firmware package file to the internal memory or micro SD card; Open "Technical Support" app on the player, enter the "Firmware Update" menu, and select the firmware package file to upgrade.

"Added grouping tracks by Album Artist category(You can select the Artist or Album Artist in the Settings->Artist List Display. This upgrade requires a database update, please scan for music again."

Will this aspect of the update be brought to the FiiO Music app AT LARGE, ie X5iii?

This is a feature we've been requesting for years.

Thank you for the new update! I have a question regarding this specific point:

Added grouping tracks by Album Artist category(You can select the Artist or Album Artist in the Settings->Artist List Display. This upgrade requires a database update, please scan for music again.)

Is there any way to display the ALBUM ARTIST interface in the exact same manner as the ALBUM interface? In other words, is there a way to see the cover artwork arranged horizontally (instead of vertically, as it is now) and in a large format (instead of small, like it is now)? Or is this now available and I am not seeing it?
