Sony Xperia Z3 Update
Another report from Android Geeks backs this up, as the Sony Xperia Z3 is reportedly getting Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update, specifically those under Rogers and Fido.
As with other Android updates, releases are rolled out in stages. This means that not all Xperia Z3 users will receive the update at once. People will need to wait until the update prompt hits their devices. They can also check manually from time to time by going to their phone’s settings. Specifically, go to Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates.
All users are advised to use a secure WiFi connection or cellular connection while updating to the new version. They also need to charge their devices fully in order to avoid further problems. Other users are advised to stay tuned for other details on the release of the update.
