T-Mobile LG V20 now receiving security update

The LG V30 may be the new hotness at T-Mobile, but this weekend there’s some good news for owners of the LG V20.

The T-Mobile LG V20 is now receiving a software update. TmoNews reader Richard received an update to version H91810q. T-Mobile hasn’t officially announced the update, so the full changelog is still unknown, but we do know that the update bumps the V20 up to the September 1, 2017 security patch level.

Like most software updates, this one is likely rolling out in stages to T-Mobile LG V20 owners. If you’ve got a V20 and haven’t yet gotten the update, you can check for it by going into General > About phone > Update Center > System update > Check for update.

This may not be a terribly exciting update, but security updates are important because many people store personal information on their smartphone. So if you’ve got a T-Mobile LG V20, keep an eye out for this update in the coming days.

Thanks, Richard!

    Got the patch this morning. I hope this had the Bluetooth fix in it. I would like to stop worrying about that.

    Seems like battery is draining faster than it used to and the phone is always warm to the touch since the update. :(

      My LG V20 is the same after the update, I have to use a Samsung S5 because my V20 will not hold a charge for more than a couple of hours.

        There were some specific apps (maps, android wear) that were consuming more than they used to. I’ve been killing them. Will see how it goes.
