Samsung s10 updates

Why does it take so long to get the updates Samsung puts out? I have the s10+, just bought a tab s5e. Samsung put out an update to the s10's at the 19th of April to allow continuity between phone and tablet but we dont have it yet.

Re: Samsung s10 updates

Hi, @Sixrulers,

 

We'd love to help with this. Here are things to know about software updates through AT&T. Look over the requirements. If your device meets them, when the update is available and provided to AT&T, your device should receive it shortly thereafter.

 

Have a great week!

 

James, AT&T Community Specialist

Because there is a 3 to 4 week lag between the Samsung releasing a update and carriers deploying a update.

Re: Samsung s10 updates

Why is there such a lag. I'm coming from iPhone where you got it the day it was released. There's no good reason to hold it back. Samsung needs to rework their deals to allow direct updates. This is dumb.

Lol because Android is open source and each carrier adds stuff.   But then again Samsung updates it's unlocked phones last anyway.  Apple is a closed system.
