As usual, the latest update is being rolled out over-the-air (OTA) and could take some time to reach all the T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices. In case if the user hasn't received the update notification already, then he/she can try checking for it manually. To do so, head to Settings > About device > Software update. Before hitting the install button, just make sure there is at least 50% charge left on the device.

It's also recommended to ensure the device is connected to a reliable internet connection before proceeding with the download. Downloading and installing the update over a cellular connection may give the users additional charges. The T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge users will get the taste of bug fixes with this new update.
