AT&T Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge now getting Android 5.1.1 update
It sure took AT&T a while, but the popular carrier is finally releasing the Android 5.1.1 update to Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices across the USA. Plenty of online reports claim the update started rolling out today and is ready for download.
Before proceeding with the update, keep in mind this is a 660 MB file, which is a pretty hefty size. You will want to give the device time for it to download, preferably over a WiFi connection.
There are a few main changes in tow. Of course, the usual Android 5.1.1 improvements are around, including improved Quick Settings, revamped volume settings and more. But this specific update also brings some neat improvements that are exclusive to the Galaxy devices.
Samsung users can now get rid of the S Settings and Quick Connect buttons, for example. There’s also changes to the icons, making them look more similar to those in the Galaxy Note 5. The camera app should also be getting some added functionality, and Guest Mode is likely to be added, as well as Android Pay.
Those who are not getting the notification to update should head over to Settings > About Phone > Software Update and check to see if they have any upgrades available now. Those Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge devices deserve it!
