    Galaxy Tab S7 picks up October 2023 security update

    Firmware
    By 

    Last updated: October 18th, 2023 at 17:12 UTC+02:00

    Samsung has released the October 2023 security update for the Galaxy Tab S7, its last flagship tablet lineup to come in only two sizes. The Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ are receiving the new update in nearly two dozen European countries at the same time, making it likely that the update will spread quickly to more markets in the coming days.

    The Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ are on their last legs as far as software updates are concerned. The two tablets have received three major Android upgrades in the years since launch, which is all they were eligible for, and version 5.1.1 was their final One UI update. But now, they will only get security updates till they finish four years on the market, after which updates will stop coming in unless Samsung discovers some serious security risks affecting old devices.

    Story continues after the video

    So, yes, the October security update that is rolling out to the Galaxy Tab S7 and S7+ only improves security – nothing else will change on your tablet once you install the update. For those wondering, the Galaxy Tab S7 FE isn't getting the October update alongside the Tab S7 and S7+, which is normal as FE devices don't usually get updates alongside their non-FE counterparts.

    To download the new update on your tablet, open the Settings app, scroll down and tap Software update, followed by the Download and install option. That's the over-the-air method; you can also upgrade your tablet using a Windows PC and the latest firmware that you can download from our archives.
