When a new Android Operating System update is announced by Google there are a few steps that take place before it becomes ready for your device.  The manufacturer receives the update and customises the software for the device and mobile carriers in each country.  Once this is completed they’ll send the update to the carriers for testing.

 

For more info on this process check out our page:

 

Android Device Updates - What's The Process?

 

The below table provides information on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 14/03/2017. If no information is listed, it means we haven't received the build or any new details from the manufacturer.

 

When a version is marked as completed it means testing has been finished on our end and approved.  Each manufacturer has a process for releasing updates to devices and once we approve the update, it’s sent back to the manufacturer to be released through their standard update processes. Generally, updates are rolled out progressively, for example the manufacturers might make the update available for a small number of users (i.e. 5%) initially; then if no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll gradually be made available to more and more users over the following weeks.

@Optus got the January security update for my galaxy s6edge + and now its freezing constantly  and my phone is always running hot now . Tried the usual resets and no difference.  How long till the next update- an  exact timeframe would be nice instead of the usual run around

Hey @Dannythehumble, not too sure about the size of the next upgrade.  The next upgrade is due anytime now.

I've been working in IT since the late 70's (OK, call me a dinosaur, I like to think I have a modicum of experience).

 

So, you are working on releasing a Security patch for the Samsung Galaxy S6 when you already have the Nougat update.

 

Wait foir it.... (drum roll)

 

Here's the burning question...

 

Does Nouogat already have this security issue fixed?  If the answer to this is "yes" then why are you wasting your effort testing a secuirty patch when you could be testing the Nougat update?

 

Work smarter, bit harder...

Hi dannythehumble

I am assuming that the 33mb update was at least partly a fix for the ims error as my edge didn't get the error again after updating even with volte turned off.

When will the Huawei Mate 9 be added to the list? The Huawei kiosk rep advised that regular updates are being pushed through to carriers , yet it hasn't been added to the above list and I have never seen an update for this flagship device?

May I ask how many people are in the Optus Android team?

So, another month, another lack of updates for the Sony line. Are you just going to abandon it?

Sorry about the downward tone of this message, but with constant empty corporate statements and no apparent action kinda makes loyal customers feel a bit unappreciated. 

I guess optus doesn't make any money from updates.
