Can I upgrade playbook with version 2.1.0.1526 to a higher version that can work well with q10 phone

I got a blackberry Q10 phone and I have been trying to tether it with my blackberry playbook but it cant connect.
The Bluetooth for both connects fine and the two are able to get paired but when you get to the tethering process, after selecting the phone name on the playbook and entering the profile, it tries to connect and instead retains a message that "Phonename" can't be found.
The settings are okay but this is the problem. The OS version for the phone is 10.1.0.2342 and that of the playbook is 2.1.0.1526. I am wondering whether the OS is the issue and if not what might be the problem. Can I upgrade the playbook to higher version to match 10.1.0.2342 of Q10.

The error that you see is normal, there is no of tethering between BB10 devices and PlayBook, all you need is to install the BlackBerry Bridge on your BB10 device and you will be able to use the PlayBook on the Internet.

 

Another way of doing this, is to use the MOBILE HOTSPOT on the phone, but this one maybe restricted by your carrier and the carrier may even charge you extra for it
