How to update Minecraft Bedrock, Java and Pocket Edition after the release of version 1.17 Caves & Cliffs

Part 1 of the Minecraft Caves and Cliffs update is just around the corner. The long-awaited update will be released today for Bedrock, Java, and Pocket editions.

After encountering technical issues and other issues due to the global pandemic, Mojang decided to split the update into two parts to maintain its quality. The first part of the update will feature new mobs, blocks, and items, while the second will introduce new biomes for caves, mountains, and more.

The first part of the Caves and Cliffs update is now ready for its official release. After many pre-releases, almost all bugs and crashes are fixed, and the update will be rolled out later today.
