Samsung rolls out an update to fix the Galaxy S8’s connectivity issues in the UK

Last week, Samsung started distributing a maintenance update for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ in the United Arab Emirates — and now it’s rolling out an identical upgrade in the United Kingdom.

While the release doesn’t bring any new features to the handsets, it does pack a plethora of bug fixes and stability improvements, including the changes included in this month’s security release.

More notably, the update addresses a Bluetooth bug that resulted in a handset rebooting when attempting to control music playing through a wireless speaker or in-car entertainment system.

If you’d like to see if the OTA is ready for your unit, follow the following steps: SettingsSoftware UpdateDownload Updates Manually. If it doesn’t show up, it means it hasn’t reached your device yet, so repeat the process in a couple of hours.

Not received it on my S8+ BTU unlocked, not had any Bluetooth issues anyway. Would like the May security patch now though, considering we’re in JUNE
