Galaxy S8+ - Update the Software Manually (SM-G955W)
Software updates are released to update the UI, enhance security, and remove bugs from your device. We recommend updating your device’s software whenever it is available.
Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version.
Manually download a software update
1. From the Home screen, swipe up or down to access the Apps screen.
2. Touch Settings.
3. Swipe to and touch Software update.
4. Touch Download updates manually.
5. If a system update is available, download and install the update by following the on-screen prompts. Touch Back if there is no update available, or if you do not want to download the update.
Note: An Android update is approved by the manufacturer first. Once Samsung approves it, it is sent to the carriers. Each carrier customizes, modifies and releases their own version of Android. In some instances, they may never release an update. This results in customers with the same manufactured devices having different versions of Android. Please contact your carrier for Android update questions.
