Galaxy S10 January security update now widely available

The January 2020 security update for the Galaxy S10 series is now widely available around the world. The rollout of the update started in Switzerland last week and has now expanded to many other markets, including the United States where unlocked Galaxy S10 models received the January update earlier this week.

The update with the January 2020 security patch is the first to hit the Galaxy S10e, Galaxy S10, and Galaxy S10+ after they were updated to Android 10. However, if you were expecting it to fix a few bugs that you may be facing on the stable version of Android 10, you will be disappointed, as the update seems to include only the latest Android security patch (details on which can be found here).

You will be able to download the update, which comes with software version G97*FXXS3BSL4, over the air by opening the Settings app on your phone, navigating to Software update, and selecting Download and install. If the update has been released in your country, you will find firmware for it in our firmware archive; you can install the firmware on your phone using a Windows PC to manually upgrade to the newest software.

Since I updated, my widgets have stopped refreshing. Anyone else having issues? I’ve done all the standard fixes and nothing.

I hoped it would fix a minor bug: I do have 5 start screens with differnt apps, my home start screen placed as the third (in the middle), but mostly when I swipe from lockscreen, my phone jumps to the most leftward screen.

I received this update yesterday.
After the Android 10 update, my app drawer was really slow taking a couple of seconds before my apps were being shown. After installing this update that issue seems to be resolved and the app drawer is faster than ever.
Also, even though the update was small (128MB), it took quite a long time to install compared to previous updates. Perhaps it cleaned up some stuff that the December Android 10 update had left behind which in turn caused my app drawer to be so slow.

Nothing like this has ever occurred on my S10 + before. I never even read about this. Get your mobile phone organized before you write that stupid thing.

Oh shut up man! Who are you to say what they are experiencing. You are always in articles attacking and criticising users with your opinions as if they are law. FML
