Under the vigil of HMD Global, Nokia smartphone users can always stay assured of timely software updates. It is one of the most efficient brands which delivers software patches quite punctually. Speaking of which, currently, the Nokia 8, Nokia 6(2017) and Nokia 5(2017) are receiving the September 2019 security patch.
The current update only steps up the security level of the devices. Apart from that, there are no other new additions or features to the Nokia 8, Nokia 6 and Nokia 5. It is really great to see that for two-year-old smartphones, Nokia is rolling out the maintenance update.
The OTA usually rolls out in batches. So, everyone will not receive it at a time. So, if you cannot wait for the OTA to drop into your device automatically, then you can manually download it. First, you have to search for it whether it has become available in your region. Geographical region, tele-carrier support does affect how soon you receive the update on your phones.
So, the process to manually capture the September 2019 security patch is basically same for all the Nokia phone mentioned here. Go to phone app drawer > go to Settings App > Tap on System Updates > Check for updates.
We always suggest our readers make use of a Wi-Fi network to quickly get away with the download process. The Nokia 5 has a bigger software so downloading through regular data may consumer time and of course, you’re charged for the data spent. So, it is wiser to find and hang on to a stable Wi-Fi network to grab the update.
It is very important that the OEMs should fortify the security aspects of their older devices. Time and again we see Google reporting multiple vulnerabilities that breach the security and can possibly harm your smartphone. So, if you use the Nokia 8, 2017 models of Nokia 5 and Nokia 6 then do not miss the September 2019 security patch for the devices.
