AT&T now rolling out Android 6.0.1 update for the Galaxy Tab S 10.5

AT&T has finally started distributing the Android 6.0.1 update for the first-generation Galaxy Tab S 10.5. The upgrade, which weighs in at 1.06GB, transports the latest build of Marshmallow to the slate, in addition to all of the bug fixes bundled into the September Security Maintenance Release (SMR). The carrier has also baked support for its NumberSync functionality into the firmware, which allows customers to use their tablet to make and receive voice and video calls with their existing phone number.

As we’ve come to expect from large releases, the update is being pushed out over-the-air (OTA) in stages. If you own a Galaxy Tab S 10.5 operating on AT&T’s network and would like to see if it’s ready for your unit, open up Settings, followed by About Device, select Software Update, then hit the Update Now button. Alternatively, you could always wait until you receive a push notification on the device prompting you to download and install the Marshmallow upgrade. However, you’ll need to have at least 50% of battery for the alert to be appear.
