Verizon pushes out security update for the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Samsung Galaxy Note 5
Yesterday, we told you that T-Mobile had sent out the monthly security update for the Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+, and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Today, it is Verizon's turn to start pushing out the update. The phones involved are the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and the Samsung Galaxy Note 5.

According to Verizon's website,  the update makes sure that the most up-to-date security patch is installed on both handsets. The new software version for the Galaxy Note 5 is LMY47X.N920VVRU2OJ3, and LMY47X.G928VVRU2AOJ3 for the Galaxy S6 edge+. Before you start the updating process, Verizon says that you should connect to a Wi-Fi network, or make sure you are receiving a strong signal from the carrier. We usually suggest using Wi-Fi, just to make sure that you are not burning any data during the update.

The security update is being sent out OTA, on a staggered basis. That means that you might not receive it for a few days. You can try to pull the update out of your phone by go to Menu  > Settings > About phone > Software updates > Check for Updates. The update will take 6-10 minutes to download, and another 6-10 minutes to install.
