Latest security update for the AT&T version of the BlackBerry KEYone is getting pushed out now
What is available is an update for owners of the AT&T BlackBerry KEYone. According to the AT&T support page, the 42MB OTA update brings the January security patch to the handset. This includes protection from the Meltdown and Spectre flaws that have been heavily publicized over the last few weeks.
When you receive notification that the update has arrived on your AT&T branded KEYone, you must connect to a Wi-Fi network in order to install it. While AT&T sees no impact to settings or data, the carrier suggests that you back up your media files before starting the installation process.
While it could take a few days until the update appears on your KEYone, you can try to receive it manually by going to Settings > AT&T Software updates > Check for updates. Follow the directions on the screen.
BlackBerry Mobile recently said that it will release two more models this year. This comes after the success of the KEYone, and the BlackBerry Motion. The latter, recently released, is the first 'Berry with an IP certification rating (IP67) and a 4000mAh battery.
