Although the mid point of 2016 is approaching soon, there are still numerous handsets that have yet to be updated to last year’s Android Marshmallow. One such example is the Motorola Droid Turbo 2, which began the process some weeks ago, but was apparently suspended before it was made available to all users.
In a new Google Plus post by David Schuster, the company’s Senior Director of Software Project Management, “full deployment” is mentioned. While details are not specified, it is believed this indicates the update was not available to all handsets initially.
The update, in addition to various security and OS-level changes, brings with it features such as Doze which promises to more aggressively manage power consumption when the device is in standby mode, and App Permissions that allow users to manually select what they do and do not wish any compatible app to access on their device.
Full details about the update are available on Motorola’s support page.
While the update will inevitably find its way pushed to phones directly, users can manually check by hitting the Settings menu, navigating to About Device, and then tapping the relevant option to check for updates.
