If you own a Galaxy S6 Edge+ or a Note 5 on the Verizon network, you will soon receive a notification prompting you to update your smartphone. There is a good chance that you have already been notified, but even if you hadn’t, you will be very soon. Alternatively, one can always check manually by going into Settings >About device > Check for updates.
The post Marshmallow update includes both security patches and general bug fixes, in addition to overall improvements. Notably, the misleading “No SIM card detected” error often encountered on the Note 5 will be fixed. You can also expect improved audio routing for better experience in call quality during both voice and video calls on the two smartphones.
In other news, Verizon’s version of the LG G5 is simultaneously receiving an update via OTA as well. Unfortunately though, the monthly security patches have not been included in that update. It was mentioned in the change-log that the package will bring “enhancements for Visual Voice Mail, Airplane Mode and reporting Microsoft Exchange Active Server data usage.” Hopefully, another update will be rolled out with the necessary security patches soon enough.
