The last Security Patch my S9 received is the one back in August 2021, as indicated here:
Google released a new one last November, however it does not seems yet available from Verizon. If I check for updates from the phone, it tells me that none is available. The only reference I can find on the Verizon website is about a few of the previous ones, as in the page linked above.
Has anyone received the November security patch yet or does anybody know when Verizon will release it? I realize that it can take some time between when Google release their patch and when carriers will deploy it, but it is now over a month.
I asked Verizon support via their chat a few weeks ago, but the agent did not have any release date yet.
Thanks in advance to anyone that may have any information about this.
Does anybody from Verizon care to reply?? Given that Samsung is still supporting quarterly security updates on the S9 I do not see why Verizon should not. See here:
At some point the S9 will be moved to a biannual update schedule, but even that is better than NO update...
We don't have access to when a security update will be released. Help is here if you are interested. Please advise.
For those interested, this morning after checking manually for the nth time if a system update was available, finally the latest one got downloaded and installed successfully.
Details are posted here:
Since the previous one happened in August and this one is dated December 2021, it may mean that the S9 has been now moved from quarterly to biannual updates.
I still find puzzling that Verizon Support have no clue and no advanced information as to when a security patch is going to be released. Especially or those of us using our phone also for work it is a serious matter.
