AT&T Rolling Out Galaxy S7 Security Update…No, Not That One

AT&T today has joined the “Let’s upgrade your Galaxy S7” party along with T-Mobile and Verizon, pushing out an update for both the S7 and the S7 Edge.  Unlike the other two carriers however, this update from AT&T does not contain the March Security update for Android.  This update is focused on general performance and security on the devices but it does not contain the March update.  The carrier didn’t give any indication as to when the March update would be seen on their network but given that their main competitors have already rolled it out, the pressure is on.

Interestingly, Samsung has been pretty clear that the March Security update is coming to US carrier devices soon and, for now, it seems AT&T is the only one that hasn’t quite pushed it out yet.  That is likely to change quickly but be aware of what this update is and, more importantly, what it is not.

The update on the S7 lineup on AT&T being pushed out to the devices now and everyone should see it hit theirs over the course of the next couple of days.   Once the update is downloaded to your phone, you will have to restart your phone during the upgrade process as most readers probably already know.

Once AT&T does push out the March update to the S7’s, I will update this post.
