Almost every carrier version of the Samsung Galaxy S9 has already received the Android 9 Pie update, and now owners of the unlocked version of the phone are finally beginning to receive it to their units as well after a long period of waiting. The update takes 1.7 gigabytes, but it is great that it comes with the Android security patch from January and also with the updated One UI from Samsung.
Carriers’ version of the phone got the update
When it comes to who would be more likely to leave phone owners without their operating system update, it would be the carriers, but this time around it has not been the case. The Samsung Galaxy S9+ and the Samsung Galaxy S9 coming from carriers such as T-Mobile, Xfinity, Sprint, Verizon, US Cellular, AT&T have already gotten their Pie update which would have been so surprising a few years ago.
How can you get the update?
If you are too excited for this Android 9 Pie update and you do not want to wait for it to download to your phone automatically, we provided you with a short step by step guide that lets you know how to get it on your own.
The first step would be to take your phone and head to Settings. Next, you need to go to the Software update. Lastly, head to download updates manually and initiate it yourself.
