Android Software Updates.pngWhen 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 info on the latest Android updates we’ve received for testing and approval as of 17/10/2016. If no info 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 & 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, where it’s made available for a small number of users (5% for example) initially. If no unforeseen problems pop up, it’ll be gradually made available to more & more users over a period of a couple of weeks.

My Priv won't update to 6.0.1, when I search it says it's up to date which software is only on 5.

Hopefully we get version 6 before 7 is released.

Updated latest Samsung S7 firmware and my phone keeps randomly restarting. Anyone else have this? What should I do?

Hey Wadep, that doesn't sound very good at all 😞 Have you already tried a factory reset of the device? If it still continues, please take you phone into an Optus Shop to be assessed or call 133937 or live chat here to get the warranty process started.
