The update is being rolled out in a phased manner and may take up to a few days to be available all across the globe and on all supported devices. So you need to wait a little if the update is not yet available on your device.

Users can install the update by going to Settings > Software update and tapping “Download and install.” Alternatively, the firmware files can be downloaded from SamMobile’s database for manual flashing.

In case, you’re unable to receive the update notification, go through the Samsung stock firmware download and installation guide to manually flash the latest software version, depending on your device model. Do remember one thing though, flasing firmware manually involves a very high risk of bricking your device, so we recommend waiting for the OTA update to come.

With this latest update, we can expect the devices to perform better. Both smart phones, which are currently on Android 14-based One UI 6.0, are slated to receive the One UI 6.1 update in the first half of 2024.

Do let us know about the update if you have updated your device to the March 2024 security update in the comment section down below.
