BlackBerry pushes out June security update for Android phones purchased from the manufacturer
A tweet sent out today from the BlackBerry Security Incident Response Team (SIRT), indicates that the manufacturer has started rolling out the June security update for Android powered BlackBerry models that were purchased from the Shop BlackBerry website. Handsets bought from carriers or retailers will have to follow the update schedule conducted by those phone sellers. With BlackBerry focused on promoting its Android handsets as the most secure to employ the operating system, the company has made a strong effort to keep its security updates up-to-date.

The phones receiving the update include the BlackBerry Priv, BlackBerry DTEK50, BlackBerry DTEK60 and the recently released BlackBerry KEYone. After the update is installed on your phone, the security patch level will read June 5th, 2017. You can double check to make sure that the new security patch has been loaded onto your 'Berry by going to Settings> About Phone.

This should be treated like any other OTA update, meaning that once you receive notification that it has arrived on your 'Berry, you need to make sure that your device is connected to a Wi-Fi signal. At the same time, your battery should be charged to 100%

Receiving timely security updates is a good reason why you might want to consider buying your next BlackBerry directly from the company. You can check out the Shop BlackBerry website by clicking on this link.
