T-Mobile’s rolling out a new update for the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+
T-Mobile has started distributing a new software update for the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ in the US, according to TmoNews. The upgrade bundles all of the patches included in this month’s Security Maintenance Release, as well as a number of miscellaneous carrier-specific bug fixes.
To be more specific, the release introduces patches for eight critical and dozens of high-risk vulnerabilities in the Android OS, and eleven that are exclusive to Samsung’s firmware, known as Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures — a number of which have been classified as high-risk.
T-Mobile is rolling out the upgrade in stages. To see if it’s available for your handset, head into Settings, navigate to Software Update, then select Download Updates Manually. Alternatively, you can always wait until you receive a notification prompting you to download and install the update.
Last week, a near-identical release started rolling out for the unlocked model of both the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge in a number of markets, including India and the United Kingdom. Before that, it went live for the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+, as well as the Galaxy Note 8 and Galaxy Note 9.
