The S series was the first to receive the company’s September 2023 security updates for Android. Only a few One UI 6.0 beta testers for Galaxy S23 users can get the upgrade. 

Soon, it will also be available on other devices:

Additionally, Samsung has fixed security flaws in several features and applications, including Samsung Keyboard, Dual Messenger, Phone and Messaging Storage, Settings, One UI Home, Weather, WiFi, Hotspot, etc. 

Samsung asserts that all the mentioned applications and features are now fixed and secure. The firm also pledges that if any more bugs remain, they will undoubtedly be resolved in a subsequent update.

It is believed that the business could soon make the September 2023 security patch available for its premium devices, including the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S21, Galaxy S22, Galaxy S23, Galaxy Z Flip 3, Galaxy Z Flip 4, Galaxy Z Flip 5, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Fold 4, and the Galaxy Z Fold 5. 

After four years of software updates, Samsung has stopped supporting the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10+.

Regarding the scheduled September release, most of the 62 vulnerabilities it fixes are in Google’s software.

Use a Galaxy S22, S22+, or Galaxy S22 Ultra in Europe (or potentially other markets). You should be able to get the update by opening the Settings app on your phone, going to “Software update,” and selecting “Download and Install.”
