Two weeks after T-Mobile updated its Galaxy S10 with Android 10, the Galaxy Note 10 has started getting the update, too.
T-Mobile is now pushing Android 10 with One UI 2 to both the Note 10 and Note 10+. Owners of the Note 10 should watch for a 2263.78MB update to version N970USQU2BSL8, while Note 10+ owners can expect at 2264.51MB update to version N975USQUBSL8.
Both updates bring a number of improvements to the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+. They include a better dark mode with enhanced image, text, and color adjustments for day and night environments, clearer app icons and system colors, and improved layouts for titles and buttons to eliminate wasted screen space. There are new full screen navigation gestures, too, and improvements to make text more visible against wallpaper.
The battery usage graph on your Note 10 or Note 10+ will show more detailed information after updating, helping you to get a better idea of what’s been using up your battery. An improved Digital Wellbeing will give you Focus Mode that can silence distracting apps when you need to focus, and the updated Camera app gives you the ability to edit the modes that appear at the bottom of the screen.
These Note 10 and Note 10+ updates are now rolling out over the air, and several TmoNews readers and Reddit users have already updated today. If you haven’t gotten your update yet, you can jump into your Settings app and check for the update manually. To give you something to read while the update is installing, I’ve included the full changelog for it below.
