AT&T Issues Update To The LG G4

AT&T has pushed out an OTA update for customers using the carrier’s version of the LG G4.  The update, which is based on Android Lollipop, addresses multiple items within the software running on the device and brings additional security updates to it as well.  Users of the LG G4 will get notification of the update on their device and can download it over Wi-Fi or celluar.  The update is 26.5MB in size so not huge and brings the Lollipop build version to LMY47D which is Lollipop 5.1.0.

On the AT&T Software Update page for the LG G4, the company lays out the items that are addressed in this update.  They include:

LG G4
  • Calendar enhancements
  • Battery improvements
  • Keyboard enhancements
  • LG Backup
  • Camera enhancements
  • GPS enhancements
  • Exchange Active Sync enhancements
  • Touch Improvement
  • Security enhancements

AT&T has indicated that the update is rolling out now and users can check to see if the update is available for their device by going to Notifications>AT&T Software updates.

While any update is welcome news for carrier locked devices, it is a bit disappointing that this update for the G4 is still on Lollipop 5.1.0 and not 5.1.1 where further security and performance enhancements are found.
