Verizon updates the Moto Z2 Force to support Gigabit Class LTE speeds
Owners of the Verizon version of the Moto Z2 Force should expect a notification about an update to come across the screen at any time. This is a pretty important update that will allow the device to support Big Red's upcoming Gigabit Class LTE service. A couple of months ago, Verizon tallied a 1.07 Gbps speed in a lab using Qualcomm's X20 LTE modem chip.  Don't expect such a high speed from the Moto Z2 Force since the latter employs the less powerful X16 modem. And the phone won't be used inside the perfect conditions found inside a lab.

The software version of the update is NDX26.183-15 and includes the September Android Security Patch and the Blueborne security patch. It also includes AppFlash which allows users to try out an app before installing it on their phone. To enable and employ AppFlash, follow these directions:

  • Press and hold an empty space on your Home screen
  • Tap Settings in the bottom right corner
  • Tap Swipe Access
  • Tap AppFlash

After you complete the above steps, you'll find AppFlash on the side screen. Swipe to the right when you want to use it.

When the notification related to the update appears on your Moto Z2 Force, make sure that you are connected to a Wi-Fi network before continuing on with the process. You should also make sure that the phone's battery is charged fully.
