Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S5 start recieving March Security update from AT&T.

Samsung launched the Samsung Galaxy S8 just a couple of days ago and the company would have been busy setting up the launch details and the phones for the launch day which is on April 21. Though the company has not forgotten about its older devices and Samsung has been kept busy updating all its phones to either Android Nougat or the March Security update. This time the phones that are getting the update had been launched by Samsung about 2 years ago and they are still receiving the security update as its very crucial for the security of the phone.

AT&T is also seeding new security software updates for the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S5. Earlier today, the carrier AT&T which has the largest network in the U.S has given similar updates for the Galaxy S7 Edge and S7 Active.

The update installs the latest March Android security patch on the devices. It is a recommended install and is being delivered over the air. The build number for the Galaxy S6 is G920AUCS6DQC1, whereas the Galaxy S5 update build number is G900AUCS4DQC1.

Both of these devices are running Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. The update weighs around 20MB in size for the Galaxy S5, and around 15MB for the Galaxy S6. One thing to note is that the Galaxy S6 has not received the Nougat update yet but Galaxy S6 will soon get the Android Nougat update, as carriers have already certified it. AT&T had also seeded the March security updates for the Galaxy S6 Edge, Note 4 and the Note Edge just yesterday.

Just one thing before doing the update on the phone is to sufficiently charge the phone so that the battery doesn’t get drained in the updation process and make sure to be connected to a stable WiFi connection to download the update as well.
