The update with the October security patch is coming to the Galaxy A7 and A8 with version number A720FXXU6CRJ5 and A530WVLS3BRJ1, respectively. It has different fixes for important vulnerabilities discovered in the Android operating system. This means that when it is available for download, you don't have to wait long to proceed with it. The normal thing is that you receive a text message advising you of the availability. Otherwise, you can go yourself to the Settings, System Update section and click on check the latest version. However, if you have the automatic update option activated, it will download once it is available on your phone.
Remember to have enough space for download and installation. If not, what are you waiting for to back up your data and free up storage? In addition, it will help you in case any type of mishap occurs when installing, not only the security update, but also any future software update . Don't forget to have at least 50 percent battery life either.
