T-Mobile BlackBerry Classic getting update from today

Des Smith, the ever-popular T-Mobile product guru announced last night that the carrier’s BlackBerry Classic is about to get its first software update. T-Mo will start rolling out BlackBerry OS from today, June 17. If you’re one of the few who has the device, be sure to check your settings for a software update.

OS comes with a handful of small-ish improvements. BlackBerry Protect is being update to include Device Antitheft. It more than likely comes with some performance improvements too. But they’re so minor, they haven’t even made it to T-Mobile’s software versions support page.

The BlackBerry Classic famously returned the Canadian tech company’s products to T-Mobile store shelves for the first time since the two companies had a public fallout last year. BlackBerry weren’t happy with the way T-Mo was targeting its customers with iPhone promotions. In response, T-Mobile offered them a chance to trade-in any old BlackBerry and reward them for it. Thankfully, now, the two companies have put that behind them. BlackBerry and T-Mobile are on good terms, and John Chen event sent John Legere a customized BlackBerry Classic for his birthday.

Let us know if you spot anything interesting in the software update.

Thanks, Alex
