AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S5 receives Android 5.0.1 update

AT&T's Samsung Galaxy S5 receives Android 5.0.1` update
Perhaps AT&T just doesn't understand the concept of seniority. Yesterday, the carrier updated the Samsung Galaxy S4 to Android 5.0.1,  leading owners of the newer Samsung Galaxy S5 to wonder where their update was. As it turns out, it was probably in the same spot all along. On Wednesday, the nation's second largest carrier started rolling out Android 5.0.1 to the Galaxy S5.

This information came via tweet from @ATTCares in response to a pointed question from an AT&T subscriber named Dave, who we assume owns the Samsung Galaxy S5. The update includes the Lollipop Material Design, Lock Screen notifications, 64-bit ART compiler to speed up the opening of apps, improved battery life with Project Volta, Smart Lock, Priority Mode for notifications and more.

When the update comes in, AT&T demands that you use a Wi-Fi connection when downloading and installing it, or else you won't be allowed to update your phone. Also, make sure that your battery is charged to at least 50%. If you feel ambitious, you can try to manually update your device by going to Settings >About device >Software update. And one last thing. Because the update is sent out in waves, you might not get it yet for a few days. No need to send a nasty tweet to AT&T, it's just the nature of the beast.
