Mar 08, 2017 01:29 AM EST


Verizon Wireless has started giving the February Android patches for users of Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphone and the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE Tablet. It is a security update to both devices that would bring Android fixes for February.

GSM Arena has reported that the incoming update of Verizon for the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ smartphone will come with the software version MMB29K.G928VVrS3BQb1. Meanwhile, the LG G Pad will have the version number VK41025A.

This software is currently available as a FOTA or Firmware Over-the-Air download for both Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ and LG G Pad. However, neither have the exact size of the downloads nor a detailed changelog that could be found on Verizon's support pages for the devices, The Android Soul has reported.

Kishalaya Kundu of Android Headlines has reported that the carrier mentioned that the new software already started giving out the new software for both devices. It would mean that it is just a matter of time before the update on Verizon would hit all the Galaxy S6 Edge+ and LG Pad 7.0 LTE units across the US.

Users around the country have most likely received the update notification from Verizon. However, some might not encounter this notification.

For those who did not receive any update notification from Verizon, they can check it manually for the availability of the incoming software. Head over to Settings, then go to About Phone, then choose Software Updates. From there, tap the Check the Updates option and it would reveal if an update for their device is available.

While the LG G Pad 7.0 LTE was released to the public with Android 4.4.2 KitKat back in 2014, it still received the Android 5.0 Lollipop update on the following year. However, the mentioned tablet was not expected to get any new Android version updates like what Verizon is giving.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ was released with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. Its last update was the Android Marshmallow which was received last year by all users, including Verizon users.
