Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge
Samsung releases first major update for Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge IBTimes UK

Samsung is rolling out the first major software update for the Galaxy S7 Android flagships for users in the UK. The update has been rolling out in other markets too for the unlocked versions bearing firmware versions G930FXXU1APD3 and G935FXXU1APD3 for the S7 and S7 Edge respectively.

The update includes improvements to the touchscreen software to fix unintentional taps on the edges of the S7 Edge, and also removes touches caused by scrolling. Along with these, the update which is available via over-the-air (OTA) incorporates April Android security patch which Google rolled out for its Nexus lineup earlier this month.

The April update, which is a part of Google's Android Security Bulletin Monthly release process, fixes one of the most serious issues considered as a critical security vulnerability that could enable hackers to spread malicious software on affected devices through multiple methods such as email, web browsing and MMS when processing media files.

In addition to this, XXU1APD3 enables support for Wi-Fi calling, which can be found once you update your phone to the latest firmware, under Settings>> Wi-FI Calling in the Phone app, reports Android Central. The update would be enabled by default upon the update.

If you are in the UK, you might consider manually grabbing the update on your S7/S7 Edge from Settings>> About device>> Download. In case you have a network-branded variant of S7, you will have to wait a little longer until the update becomes available.
