Verizon has been pretty good about pushing updates to its smartphones lately, rolling out Marshmallow to devices like the Galaxy S5, Galaxy Note 4, DROID Maxx 2, and Galaxy Note Edge in the past few weeks. And today, the Verizon update train just kept a-rollin’.
Verizon has announced that it’s now pushing updates to its Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 edge. The carrier’s changelog says that the updates “give you the most up to date Android security patch,” and Reddit users that’ve already received the update have confirmed that it brings the Android security patch level of the VZW S7 and S7 edge to June 1, 2016.
If you’ve got a Verizon Galaxy S7 or S7 edge and haven’t yet gotten this new update, you can check for it manually by going into Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for updates.
While this security-focused update may not sound super exciting, it’s important to keep your smartphone secure. And it’s good to see Verizon keeping the flagship Galaxy S7 and S7 edge up-to-date with the latest Android security patches.
