Blast from the past: Verizon rolls out Android 7.0 Nougat for Motorola DROID MAXX 2
The DROID MAXX 2 is a rather old smartphone having been introduced in the US in late 2015. At the time Verizon launched the device, it was running Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, but the carrier updated the DROID MAXX 2 to Marshmallow back in 2016.

Although it hasn't been three full years since the DROID MAXX 2 made its debut on the market, we're kind of surprised to see that Verizon and Motorola are still supporting the smartphone. Today, Big Red confirmed the handset launched in October 2015 is now getting an Android 7.0 Nougat update.

Along with Nougat, Motorola included the December security update and the Krack patch. If you still own the DROID MAXX 2, there are two things you need to do to ensure the whole update process will go smoothly: charge up the phone's battery and connect it to Wi-Fi or Verizon's network.

Also, make sure that you have enough free storage on your smartphone since this is going to be a fairly sizable download, mostly likely weighing at more than 1GB.
