<h1 id="get">Get Tails 4.24</h1>
## To upgrade your Tails USB stick and keep your persistent storage
- Automatic upgrades are broken from Tails 4.14 and earlier.
Follow our instructions to do an [[automatic upgrade from Tails 4.15, Tails
4.16, Tails 4.17, or Tails 4.18|doc/upgrade/error/check#4.18]].
- Automatic upgrades are available from Tails 4.19 or later to 4.24.
You can [[reduce the size of the download|doc/upgrade#reduce]] of future
automatic upgrades by doing a manual upgrade to the latest version.
- If you cannot do an automatic upgrade or if Tails fails to start after an
automatic upgrade, please try to do a [[manual upgrade|doc/upgrade/#manual]].
## To install Tails on a new USB stick
Follow our installation instructions:
- [[Install from Windows|install/win]]
- [[Install from macOS|install/mac]]
- [[Install from Linux|install/linux]]
<div class="caution"><p>The Persistent Storage on the USB stick will be lost if
you install instead of upgrading.</p></div>
## To download only
If you don't need installation or upgrade instructions, you can download
Tails 4.24 directly:
- [[For USB sticks (USB image)|install/download]]
- [[For DVDs and virtual machines (ISO image)|install/download-iso]]
<h1 id="next">What's coming up?</h1>
Tails 4.25 is [[scheduled|contribute/calendar]] for December 7.
