Telus usually approves within a week after a month of testing from the original release of software/firmware, but sometimes it could take from 4 weeks to 6 months.

Telus Communication provides the software update to the users; unlike the unlocked smartphones, the carrier-locked smartphones get the software update after 3 step process: Manufacturer testing, Internal Network Testing, and Regulatory approval.

The device manufacturer performs testing on new os or software; new software is provided to Telus. It conducts internal testing of oS/software against their carrier network for compatibility. When device manufacturers and carrier operators agree on a new os/software for its stability, it’s submitted to the Canadian regulatory board. After meeting Canadian regulatory and fcc requirements, it’s then approved for a device manufacturer to release the update.

Telus Communications Inc. (TCI) is the wholly-owned principal subsidiary of Telus Corporation. This Canadian national telecommunications company provides a wide range of telecommunications products and services, including internet access, voice, entertainment, healthcare, video, and IPTV television.

In the past, we have already seen other updates for different regions; nothing major came out apart from the security patches and minor tweaking of stock apps and UI; we should expect the same for this region.
