It’s common that carrier-branded Android handsets take their time before getting updates, so it wasn’t new to see the WiFi-only version of the Samsung S2 marsh in Marshmallow before the AT&T version. But things are quite surprising in this regard since Verizon beat everyone else by over a month! That’s a whopping lot of time.

If you use the AT&T Samsung Tab S2, don’t let the politics get on your nerves. A Marshmallow 6.0.1 is rolling out. There are various improvements in this new update, including better granular permissions, adaptable storage, Google Now on Tap, and Doze mode among many others. Marshmallow 6.0.1 also comes with some device-specific fine-tunes (for instance, ability to enjoy regular voice calls).

Of course, you can learn more about all these enhanced capabilities during the update process. Just make sure that you have a working Wi-Fi connection, and a fully-charged battery so the process isn’t interrupted somewhere in the middle. The update weighs about 1GB.

Now, everyone is looking to the Android Nougat update that’s due towards the end of the year, but Marshmallows still has a lot to offer. Before Nougat hits the scene, you want to make sure that you’ve made the best out of what’s in the market right now.
