Verizon rolls out the December 2023 update to the Galaxy S23, S22, Fold 5, and Flip 5 in the USA


Samsung is rapidly moving forward to update its eligible Galaxy devices. Currently, the company is handling two fresh updates from them: one is One UI 6 and the other is the December 2023 security patch. If we talk about the One UI 6 update, the Korean giant has already pushed the update to almost all the high-end devices and also started serving the post-security update to them. Verizon, the US carrier, is also following it, and now it has started rolling out the update to four more devices, including the Galaxy S22, Galaxy S23, Galaxy Z Fold 5, and Galaxy Z Flip 5.

The latest update for all four devices is now available for the locked variants, so users who own the Galaxy S22 and Galaxy S23 devices can identify the latest update by the firmware version numbers S90*USQS3DWKA and S91*USQS2BWKA, respectively. While the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Galaxy Z Flip 5 carry the firmware version numbers F946USQS1BWKI and F731USQS1BWKI, respectively,.

The latest update for these devices is coming with some security enhancements; more specifically, there are more than 60 fixes introduced, and from them, there are 50 fixes added by Google that fix the security vulnerabilities found in the Android OS. Along with this, there are 16 more fixes introduced by Samsung that enhance the security of devices.

It is worth noticing that these devices already received the One UI 6 update in the previous update, and now they are getting the first post-security update, so it is possible that with this update you may get some fixes for bugs left in the last update. If you are facing any issues after updating the device to the latest update, then this update might help you.

To install the latest update on your device, you should follow these simple steps: First, open the system settings, then tap on the software update menu, touch the download and button option, and wait for some time until it finishes searching. If it shows a new update available, then tap on the download button.
