[Update: Galaxy S9] Galaxy S9+ update brings September 2019 security patch
There’s a new Galaxy S9+ update rolling out today and it brings the September 2019 security patch. It’s a routine security maintenance release so there’s not much in the way of new features.
Samsung detailed the latest security patch about a week ago. It includes fixes from both the company and Google. That patch is now gradually being rolled out to compatible devices across the globe.
