AT&T’s Galaxy S10 series gets important July 2020 security update
Samsung’s latest firmware update containing the July 2020 security patch for the Galaxy S10 series was first released exactly three weeks ago, then it was briefly pulled from the air before Samsung resumed the rollout. Now the Galaxy S10 series is finally getting the July 2020 security patch from AT&T in the USA.
Carrying build number G97xU1UEU4DTF3, the latest firmware update arrives on AT&T’s Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+, and introduces the July 2020 security patch that was detailed by Samsung at the beginning of the month. It fixes a variety of Android OS vulnerabilities as well as 14 security issues found in Samsung’s own software. Among other things, the July 2020 security patch fixes a serious issue that can cause smartphones to remain stuck in a bootloop when using certain images for wallpapers.
It doesn’t seem like the new firmware update brings any other improvements or additions to the Galaxy S10 series on AT&T’s network, but you wouldn’t want your smartphone to be rendered useless by accidentally applying an incorrect image as a wallpaper. With that being said, the July 2020 security patch is fairly important, and you can download it on AT&T’s Galaxy S10 series over the air by opening Settings on your phone, navigating to Software update and tapping Download and install.
