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.

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.

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.

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

Re: Galaxy S6 security updates

I did the update through Virgin/(Bell) & got VoLTE & Wifi Calling just this past week than after I heard that Fido/(Rogers) came out with the update hours later, I ended up installing the one from Fido & still got the same results as the Virgin/(Bell) update. That's why I said "I wouldn't be surprised if they took the update from another carrier & modified it as their own" lmao

@Dions

 

I have Bell version on my phone a friend updated today and has version G920W8VLU4CPG5.

Seems to be working great in early going, wifi calling and all.

 

As I predicted it was released in silence like they were first to get it out, no explanation no announcement, I knew it was out before any mod mentioned it here.

There was no apolgy, well the mods did but what about something from the top? talk about taking the customer for granted.

With the Fido phone as most of us guessed soon as you are on WiFi a pop-up I forms you that using wifi calling will deduct from your plan minutes.
