A lot of Samsung smartphones are receiving Marshmallow updates these days. Following the release of Android 6.0 to Samsung Galaxy Note 5, the latest Android 6.0.1 was rolled out to T-Mobile’s Galaxy s6 edge+.


T-Mobile subscribers were intimated on Monday that the Android OS is offered to the two Samsung phones. The carrier published in details how to run the update in its support pages. However, what might be disappointing is, Android users will have to wait a long time before receiving the newest OS version.

Five months have passed since the launch of Marshmallow last November, but it takes a whale of time for the latest version to arrive in smartphones. Wireless carriers and phone makers conduct an elaborate test of each new version released from Google before the OS rolls out.

Customers registered on T-Mobile have already started receiving the Marshmallow update for Samsung Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, which will continue till May 20. Users will get a notification for the update on Wi-Fi connection. If you do not want to wait for an over-the-air (OTA) update, then download it manually by clicking on Settings-System section-About device setting. Then, tap on Software update and Ok to check the update, reports CNET.
