T-Mobile LG G6 update brings security patches

Days before the launch of the LG G7 ThinQ, T-Mobile and LG are giving a treat to LG G6 owners.

The T-Mobile LG G6 is now receiving a software update to version H87211h. Included in the update is the April 1, 2018 Android security level, up from the December 1, 2017 Android security level that it had been on previously.

A security update like this may not be super exciting, especially since T-Mobile’s LG G6 is still waiting for its Oreo update. But considering that the G6 was on a months-old security patch level, it’s good that T-Mo and LG are at least pushing some newer (though not the newest) security patches to the device.

This update is now going out over the air. You can check for it manually by going into your Settings app. T-Mobile does note that updates are set on a scheduled daily limit, and if that limit is reached, you’ll have to check again the next day or wait until June 19th when the daily limit is lifted.

Thanks, Bill!

    “T-Mobile does note that updates are set on a scheduled daily limit, and if that limit is reached, you’ll have to check again the next day or wait until June 19th when the daily limit is lifted.”

    June 19th?! So instead of a nearly two month old security patch you’ll be getting a nearly 3 month old security patch and have to go that extra month unprotected? What’s the point of regular and timely security patches when they’re purposefully delayed thereby leaving you unprotected?

    This *should* be available through LG Bridge like all updates though for those who don’t want to be forced to wait to secure your phone.

      Don’t worry. LG phones don’t sell well enough & the majority of people don’t care enough about updating their phones for this to be an issue anyway. Not trying to be crass, but I’m just calling it the way I see it.
