BlackBerry Priv receives unexpected update
It should be pointed out that even though there are no more monthly security updates coming to the Priv, BlackBerry did say that "should a critical vulnerability be exposed, we will engage our partners as needed to develop and deliver necessary patches." We don't know if that is the case here, but with the update weighing in at 100MB, there could be something interesting included.
When you receive the notification alerting you that the update has arrived on your Priv, before you continue the updating process, there are two things you need to do. One, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi signal. And two, check to see if your battery is fully charged.
We understand that there could be some verification issues after the update has been installed. If you encounter this problem, you can find out how to fix things by clicking on this link.
