Galaxy S6/Edge getting June security patch on T-Mobile
The words “Samsung” and “firmware updates” don’t exactly go hand in hand, but this year in particular, the Korean manufacturer has seemingly been making more of a concerted effort to prioritize Android updates.
Just yesterday it was reported that the Galaxy Note Edge was receiving the June security update patch for South Korean users, and now today brings news of T-Mobile in the USA rolling out the same security patch for owners of the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
The file comes in at roughly 250MB so it’s likely the FOTA will need to be a Wi-Fi affair. If the update hasn’t appeared yet, it’s possible to manually attempt to force it: Navigate over to the Settings menu, hit About Device, then find the tab for System Updates.
Note that as carriers typically deploy FOTA transfers in waves, there is no guarantee this will produce results initially. An alternative would be to connect the device to a computer and check through Samsung’s software suite.
If neither option works, just sit tight and the update should prompt for download in a few days or weeks.
Note that while the update suggests bug fixes as per usual, currently the only change detected is said June security level update.
Are you a T-Mobile customer? Have you received the file yet? Any trouble, or was it smooth sailing? Leave a comment below!
