The Samsung Galaxy S6 is now receiving November’s security patches on T-Mobile, according to unofficial T-Mobile blog TmoNews. The update brings the device up to build number G920TUVU5EPK5 but T-Mobile has yet to outline the changes on its support page.

Given the history of their updates, it’s highly likely that the Galaxy S6 Edge is receiving the security patches also, but this remains unconfirmed (if the update has landed on your S6 Edge, give us a shout in the comments).

The update to the S6 is rolling out over-the-air now but it may not be deployed on all handsets simultaneously. Check the software update page of your device settings to see if it’s available if you haven’t received the OTA notification already.

Besides security patches, the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are both expected to receive the major upgrade to Android Nougat, though when exactly this will happen remains to be seen. Check out our thoughts on how Android 7.0 currently looks on the Galaxy S7 Edge at the link.
