Motorola’s Moto Z starts getting February security update via an OTA.

Motorola has been one of those companies who has a bad reputation of providing the timely Android updates to its phones. Motorola has not been able to send the updates to its flagship devices as well like the latest Moto Z let alone the Moto G4 or the Moto E series of phones. Motorola has been behind the schedule for rolling out the Security updates and has been able to just now send out the February Security updates to its top of the line Moto Z smartphone in the month of April. Nonetheless, an update is always welcome whenever it is available.

The Moto Z units in the US are receiving the February monthly security patch update as build NPLS25.86-17-3-1. The update which is Android Nougat based is being rolled out over the air as we speak. If you own a Moto Z phone, wait for some time for the update to appear on your device.

And if waiting is not preferred by you, you can check for it right away by heading to Settings > About device > System updates. However, before hitting the download button, connect your device to a WiFi network and ensure that it is at least 50 percent charged.

Moto Z was got the update to Android 7.0 Nougat way back last year in December and is soon expected to rock the Android 7.1.1 OS version. Nevertheless, make sure that you install the update properly and download it in a good WiFi network as the update is expected to be above 100MB and also make sure to let the update process take some time preferably plugged in as the process can take some time and you need not worry about it. Also it is advisable to take a backup of the important files on your phone just in case something wrong occurs during updation.
