Galaxy S6 security updates

I am wondering why the Galaxy S6 is still sitting with a November security update. I know people with unlocked versions that have January 2016. Whose fault is this Samsung or Fido? bad enough you have to wait 6 months for a software update for this phone. Over 3 months now since 6.0 has been out and nothing on update schedule here, Nada.

Hey everyone!

 

The wait is over... The Android M update with Wi-Fi Calling & security updates is now available for the S6/S6 Edge! Thank you, everyone, for your patience with this.

I would be interested to know who 'promised' these updates on a monthly basis.  was it google, samsung or fido?  i'll bet it's google, and they no teeth to enforce their updates make it down the line.

Re: Galaxy S6 security updates

The updates were promised by Google and then Samsung promised the same and yes they just released a February update and the S6 on Fido still sits on November's security update. Nexus devices are now able to download Androd N beta and six Months later my  Fido S6 is still waiting for Android M, how is that acceptable?  smh

Re: Galaxy S6 security updates

Exactly what is coming soon supposed to indicate? Months ago it was promised in June 2016 but now it's obvious that ain't happening. Android N is already in beta testing so with any luck good carriers will be releasing that to their customers while us Fido peons sit her idly waiting for the carrot that is Marshmallow. Frankly this is pathetic given its been months that the other carriers pushed Marshmallow OTA. I can't wait for my contract to expire and find a carrier with concerns about providing updates expeditiously.

Re: Galaxy S6 security updates

Well it's great Fido finally after almost a year released the Android M update but yet the security patch is sitting at the July Security Patch, you would think it would have the August Security Patch... Once again way a go Fido/(Rogers) for not keeping this up to date.........

Yes I agree the late into August you would expect it to have August. I heard that had many crucial fixes, my friends S6 received that update almost 2 weeks ago.

Re: Galaxy S6 security updates

Wow well isn't that just lovely, honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Fido/(Rogers) took the Android M update from a different carrier & modified it as their own as it took them almost a year just to release Android M on the S6/S6 Edge devices
