U.S. Cellular rolls out Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow for Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5
Three weeks after AT&T released the long-awaited Android 6.0 Marshmallow for the Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5, U.S. Cellular announced its customers can download the update as well.

The original Galaxy Tab S tablet made its debut on the market more than two years ago, to the software update that's not being rolled out will most likely be the last the slate will get until end of life.

Originally shipped with Android 4.4.2 KitKat onboard, the Galaxy Tab S 10.5 was a pretty impressive tablet when it launched back in 2014. Hopefully, Android Marshmallow will make it even faster, not slower.

According to U.S. Cellular, Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 owners have two options to get the update: upgrade without having to use an USB cable, or via Samsung Kies. If you choose the first option, then you should know that the update is only available for download via Wi-Fi.

Simply head to Setting / About device / Software update, select OK and follow the on screen prompts to complete the upgrade process.

For the second method, you must download and install Samsung Kies on your desktop and connect the tablet via an USB cable. To update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow simply tap on the Firmware upgrade tab.

Samsung Galaxy Tab S 10.5 owners should be looking for firmware T807R4TYU1CPJ1 to update to Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow. It's also worth noting that aside from the standard new features and improvements included in the new OS update, you should also receive the October security patch.
