If you haven’t seen the Marshmallow hit your device, then its your lucky day. This of course, applies to owners of the BlackBerry Priv on the T-Mobile network carrier. After Blackberry officially begun pushing out Android 6.0 Marshmallow, T-Mobile is now rolling out the upgrade to the BlackBerry Priv handset.

Via a post published on T-Mobile’s support page, BlackBerry Priv smartphones began receiving the update on June 13th, which upgrades their software to version 6.0.1 Android, build number AAF153. The update brings new features and improvements from Android Marshmallow, as well as enhancements to performance and stability.

Devices that have AAE134, AAD164 or AAD442 build numbers are eligible for the upgrade. To check, go to Apps >> Settings >> About phone. If your build number doesn’t match any one of those mentioned then your BlackBerry Priv is not a carrier variant.
