Users of Android powered mobile devices know exercises of patience all too well, especially when it comes to waiting for the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system to make its way to their smartphones and tablet devices, particularly those not made by Google. Still, some phone makers are quicker than others (like LG), while for the rest, it often takes months.
Here is some good news for owners of Samsung’s current flagship devices -- the South Korean tech giant has just revealed that it is commencing the roll out of Google’s Android 7.0 Nougat to Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge handsets by way of its Galaxy Beta Program.
LG’s flagship device, the G5, officially becomes the first mobile device not made by Google to get updated to Android 7.0 Nougat, the newest version of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system. LG is looking to launch a worldwide roll out of its Android Nougat update to G5 units, but almost certainly, G5 owners who are based in South Korea will be the first to receive the software update.
The world’s biggest seller of smartphone devices recently revealed that 85 percent of all recalled units of Galaxy Note 7 phablets have already been handed back by way of its refund and exchange program. Samsung also noted most of the those who returned their handsets chose to get another Samsung device.
Apparently for some. Apple has just started the deployment of the final version of its iOS 10 mobile operating system, but there are reports surfacing that users are encountering issues when downloading the newest iOS software update.
Apple is officially starting its deployment of the finished version of its iOS mobile operating system, iOS 10. The roll out is being done by way of over the air updates in the Settings app, and through a wired update wherein mobile users can just plug their iPhone and iPad devices into iTunes and download the newest iteration of iOS. Apple also took the opportunity to formally release watchOS 3, the latest version of its operating system for wearable devices.
Android mobile users might be glad to know that the crew behind Google’s mobile security has taken the opportunity to roll out an Android update that should fix a couple of security flaws that could potentially put Android handsets at risk if cybercriminals had taken advantage of them.
