New Galaxy Tab S6 update out with old security patch


Last updated: October 7th, 2019 at 07:43 UTC+02:00

The Galaxy Tab S6 has received a new software update that brings last month’s security patch to Samsung’s latest flagship tablet. A handful of Galaxy devices, including last year’s Galaxy Tab S4, have already been updated with the October security patch, but Tab S6 owners will have to make do with the September patch for now. The new update comes with software version T86*XXU1ASJ1 and is currently available in Germany, Canada, Korea, and for Cellular South users in the US.

In addition to the September security patch, the update enables landscape mode for the Samsung Pass and Samsung Flow apps. It’s a 400 MB download over the air for the Wi-Fi variant, and it should be around the same for the LTE variant. Galaxy Tab S6 owners in any of the countries mentioned above can check if the update is available for their tablet by going into the Software update menu of the tablet’s Settings app and tapping the Download and install option.

Over-the-air updates can take time to reach all users, so you might have to tap the Download and install option a couple of times or try doing it after a few hours. Alternatively, you can skip the waiting game and upgrade your tablet by flashing the latest firmware on it with a Windows PC. You can find all firmware for the Galaxy Tab S6 in our firmware archive (Wi-Fi | LTE).
