The Marshmallow update to Blackberry Priv phones had already been provided by major telcos a few months ago. But there is one particular carrier which is still left for this OS update and that is Verizon. Let us find here the information about the possible release dates for the Marshmallow update on Blackberry Priv phones for Verizon subscribers.
Verizon has not yet confirmed the availability of Marshmallow update so it does not seem that the information is widespread now. But, if you own the Blackberry Priv, you should checkout whether the update is available for you or not. If you get an error message like, “Unable to connect” or similar, it means that the update for your Blackberry Priv is not yet available.
According to Phone Arena, it should be noted that the Android Marshmallow update which Verizon is expecting for Blackberry Priv will also contain the October security patches as well. The Android Marshmallow update is likely the last major OS update for Blackberry Priv which Blackberry has planned. The Android 7.0 Nougat will now come only for the newest smartphones launched by the company like the new Blackberry DTEK60 phones.
Crackberry has recently reported that at least one member in their forums has reported receiving the Android Marshmallow update on their Verizon Blackberry Priv while others see just the “Unable to connect” message when they check the updates on Priv phones.
The software update page of the Verizon remains unchanged but it is recommended that you keep on checking the updates if you own Blackberry Priv phone on Verizon. It is just a small soak test they might have carried out and most of the people should get it downloaded.
It has to be noted that Android Marshmallow comes with many good features: a simple tap and useful information, battery saver, doze mode, app standby, customized permissions and more!
