The RCA RCT6973W43 will probably not get an OS update. This tablet was listed on Amazon's site in 2017. RCA would rather you buy a new gadget instead of making patches and updates compatible with their hardware. Google expects the manufacturer (for tablets and some phones) or the provider (most cell phones) to handle the updates. For the low-end tablets, like this RCA RCT6973W43, this means very minimal support for at most 1 year. For more expensive devices, you won't get updates for more than two-three years. Even Google branded devices don't get more than 5 years of updates.

I wish that I had better news for you.

A Factory Reset is the only way. Power Down, Hold the Volume Down and Power button for 20 seconds until you see the Recovery Console.

If it mentions PUK Lock, then that is different and can only come from your cellular provider as they have locked it at firmware level with a 128 bit RSA Key.

It's inside, this may require you to "split the cases" or remove the screen. You'll need a heat gun and a razor blade. See attached Video.

You have to either unlock your tablet by contacting Google if you have genuinely forgotten your password or wipe the tablet clean of all it's data and install the android software using a custom ROM.

Uninstall Words with Friends 2 and then clear the cache and any remnants of that game from your iPad. Then restart and install the game again.

You might have to call Google to have it unlocked but the other option is to wipe the tablet clean of all it's data and install a custome ROM by unlocking the boot loader.

Click Settings - General - Software Update

If none are offered, your device has outgrown the iOS updates and you either stick with the model you have or upgrade to a newer iPad

According to my iPhone, the most up to date iOS is 12.1.4.
