Samsung kickstarted its February 2021 patch rollout a bit early this time, with the European Galaxy S20 line being the first recipient. Now, these latest Android security updates are spreading to the US, starting with the unlocked Galaxy S20 models and the Note20 Ultra, and more recently followed by a couple of older and budget devices on AT&T and Verizon.
Despite having a fairly manageable portfolio, OnePlus is struggling to deliver the latest updates to its flagship devices. The OnePlus 8T, the company's latest offering, only got the January security patch in February and didn't receive a single Open Beta update since its launch in October — until now.
After going through a rough spell lately, OnePlus is back on track with its release schedule and is keeping up with its commitment to push bi-monthly security updates. It released the December patch to the OnePlus 6T and 6 late last month, along with a slew of minor fixes, and now the two 2018 flagships are getting a bump to the February level with the newest update.
February's security patch began rolling out yesterday, and whether you grabbed it by checking for an OTA update or by downloading the file straight from Google and applying it, you may (or may not, really) notice one tiny change. The About phone section of settings is jumping up to become a top-level item.
