Verizon updates Samsung Galaxy S9 and the Samsung Galaxy S9+ with the June Android security patch
Verizon is pushing out security updates today to several handsets including the Samsung Galaxy S9, Samsung Galaxy S9+, the Moto Z2 Force, LG V20, the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+. While the Galaxy S9 and Galaxy S9+ are receiving the June 1st patch, all of the remaining models will be receiving the May version. Considering that the June update has caused some issues with the Google Pixel 2 XL and the Nokia 7 Plus, perhaps those receiving the May security patch should be counting their blessings.
Before you actually download the update and install it, make sure that your handset is connected to a Wi-Fi network or a strong Verizon signal. At the same time, you'll want to charge your batteries to full strength. Once both of these tasks are completed, you can start the updating process.

- Samsung Galaxy S9-(June 1st, 2018 patch, software version R16NW.G960USQS2ARF4).
