Verizon rolls out security updates to 11 Android flavored handsets
The nation's largest carrier, Verizon Wireless, is sending out security updates to 11 Android handsets. The range of handsets receiving the security update starts with current top shelf flagship phones like the HTC 10 and the Motorola Moto Z Force Droid, to older generation models like the Samsung Galaxy S5. The updates will be sent out OTA, which means they will go out on a staggered basis. If you don't receive your update at the same time as your friend who has the same phone, relax. You will eventually receive the last security update for 2016.

According to Verizon, "The current software update gives you the most up to date Android security patch on your device." Big Red suggests that when you receive the notification telling you that the update has arrived, make sure that you are connected to Wi-Fi or a strong Verizon signal. You should also make sure that your battery is fully charged before starting the process of updating the phone.

The 11 handsets receiving the update include:

HTC 10: Software version 1.85.605.9
Moto Z DROID/Moto Z Force DROID: NCLS25.86-11-4
Moto Z Play DROID: Software version MCOS24.104-35-1-19
